Plant Description
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 about 5 - 8 cm long. The white flowers with fluffy stamens are borne close to the stems, they bloom in late spring, but sometimes the tree blooms a second time in late autumn. The fruit is round 2.5 - 4 cm in diameter (the size of a small plum), 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
