Cultural Preferences

Pineapple Guava grows in full sun or part shade and prefers a fertile, well drained soil with plenty of organic matter. It adapts to both acid or alkaline conditions so pH isn't usually a concern. It can be pruned in early spring or after harvesting the fruit. Pineapple Guava flowers are produced on new growth (new shoots), so pruning in early spring will not prevent flowering and fruiting later in the season. Do not prune in winter. Once established, Pineapple Guava is quite drought tolerant however will appreciate a deep soaking of water during periods of longer drought. USDA Zones: 8a-10b Find Your Zone >
