Chilean Guava

Myrtus ugni molinae

The attractive Chilean Guava bears red, one inch oval fruit with a tart flavor and aroma reminiscent of strawberries. The self-fertile bush loves warm climates and can grow to 15-feet, but will stay smaller, 6-to-8-feet, in cooler climates. Trim the bush to a size you like and consider planting several to make an unusual hedge.

Chilean Guavas, favored long ago by Queen Victoria, can even thrive outdoors in southwest England. Plant in well-drained soil in a sunny location or grow as a greenhouse plant. Leaves are a tea substitute.



Items listed on the website are what we have available this season. Items appearing in the Raintree catalog that are sold out do not appear on the website. If you are interested in reserving a sold out item for next year, call us at 1-800-391-8892.
LATE PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS: If you live in an area where temperatures are now often above 75 degrees, it is too warm to plant bare root plants. You can call us and reserve for next season. For those of you in cooler areas, our bare root plants area dormant in cold storage and are in great condition to dig in and grow for you.

We advise soaking the roots for 24 hours before planting.
