Update on what is going on with our pineapple Guava:

We have fruits(Guava) growing or at least that is what I hope these are.  We are so lucky to have the plant produce on its first year.

feijoa is very different from other guavas and for me (who eat pretty much all fruits) it's impossible to eat by biting it. The only way i can consume it is to put it in blender with sugar.


Very interesting. I keep hearing that this variety (feijoa) is the most pleasant of all. You're making me nervous.

Very cool, Arturo, please keep us updated. My in-ground feijoa seem to be about the only thing not really phased by this vicious heat/drought.
Want: Any CDD variety

Jake,

3 varieties, that is awesome.  I donít even know which one I have.  That is all mine had on it, Pineapple Guava.  Please keep us informed of yours. I care to know the difference

Tyler,

In my area, itís being raining for the last 3 weeks but I know what you mean.  I got this one cause I hoped it could take the crazy weather we get(extreme heat during summer and freezes during winter).
