Customer Reviews

growing in a container and it's fruiting generously
by mj, March 2, 2019

I purchased this plant 2 years ago in the smallest container sold and it fruited the next year. It lives in a 20ish gallon pot and I keep its shrub-like shape trimmed to 3'x3'. It's tolerant of both high wind and salt air. I'm really happy with it (Note- I don't have a second pineapple guava but it fruits generously).

Very satisfied
by Maggie, April 12, 2017

with my large healthy plant. Even though it took me almost two weeks to finally put it into the ground, it's doing great. I ended up planting it closer to the main house where I can take care of it better than my first pineapple guava in 2016.
