The Chilean Guava is a slow growing evergreen shrub that will withstand temperatures down to -10°C (14°F). It will grow to a height of 1.5-3m (5-10'). The plant is tolerant of most soils provided it is moist and well drained and will benefit from the addition of well-rotted garden compost. Prefers a sheltered position in full sun but is tolerant of partial shade. Late frosts may knock the young growth but the plants usually recover well. Fragrant self-fertile, pink-white flowers are produced in spring followed by red fruits from mid summer. No pruning is required other than the removing any misplaced shoots in late winter or early spring. In colder parts of the country grow the plants in pots which should be overwintered in a greenhouse or conservatory. During the growing season keep the plants well watered and feed them regularly with a balanced liquid fertiliser. During the winter months keep the compost just moist. The berries are ready for harvesting when they are just soft to the touch and a deep rich red colour.

You don't need a heated greenhouse to grow your very own exotic fruit with this tropical-tasting, cool tolerant crop.
