The Chilean Guava is an evergreen fruit shrub made up of tiny, dark green, simple leaves. Beautiful pink and yellow, bell-shaped flowers bloom from June, shortly followed by blackberry sized, red fruits. The fruits are not only full of wonderful strawberry and pineapple flavours, but they are also full of lycopene and vitamins. The berries are perfectly edible fresh or can be processed into jams, cakes or eaten dried. Start your morning right by adding them to your breakfast muesli or fruit salads. Ugni molinae is suitable for pot growing and can make an excellent bonsai subject.
We have excellent quality, 8cm tall seedlings on offer.
The intended main use of this plant is to grow food for human consumption. We always recommend further research to learn the different ways in which the food source can be prepared and consumed.
