Psidium cattleianum - Strawberry Guava


  • The Psidium cattleianum is an evergreen shrub with simple, glossy leaves. It produces strawberry sized fruits that turn purple when mature. They are sweet, aromatic (similar to the strawberry) and can be used in jellies, jams, custards, drinks etc. 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.
