  • A compact, evergreen bushy shrub to 3 - 6 m in height, native to Brazil, with smooth, rounded branches. Its leaves are smooth, glossy, leathery and the white flowers bloom in late spring. The fruit is round 2.5 - 4 cm in diameter deep wine-red, with a very thin skin. The flesh is juicy and believed to have the finest flavour of any guava. Cherry guavas will grow in a wide range of soils but need good drainage. They dislike low temperatures and will not tolerate very heavy frost but are hardier to cold than the common guava.
