The Psidium cattleianum is an evergreen shrub with simple, glossy leaves. The Strawberry Guava produces strawberry sized fruits that turn purple when mature. They are sweet, aromatic (similar to the strawberry) and can be used in salads, mixed into yoghurt or they can be blended into smoothies or fruit juices. The species is named in honour of English horticulturist William Cattley and the name of the genus Psidium comes from the Latin psidion, or "armlet. The shrub is not fully hardy, so it is best to keep it in a pot, outside in the Summer and protected from frosts harsher than -4C.
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.
