Product Code: 299

Rumoured to be one of Queens Victoria favourite fruits Chilean Guavas produce deliciously sweet berries that have an appearance similar to that of a blueberry, but are deep pink/red in colour, with the flavour and fragrance of a wild strawberry.

Highly attractive ‘Flambeau’ is slightly harder than the non-variegated forms of Chilean Guava and is a compact, slow-growing evergreen shrub with small leathery green leaves with cream and pink variegation. From late June/July it produces pretty white and pink bell-shaped flowers followed by delicious shiny red edible fruits in September/October.  These fruits are delicious when picked and eaten straight from the bush, but can also be used in baking and because they are high in pectin make an excellent jam.

Chilean Guavas will grow in most moist, but free draining soils, in full sun to partial shade and are hardy in most areas of the U.K. providing they are given a warm, sheltered position.  Further north and during harsh winters, we recommend moving them undercover if they are growing in pots, or protecting them from cold winds with fleece.  Easy to maintain, this evergreen shrub will reach an eventual height and spread of around 1.5m (5ft) by 1m (3ft 2in). It also forms an excellent edible hedge when plants are spaced 50-100cm (20-40in) apart. Supplied in 1 litre pots.

Available for despatch from late September and from then on all year round.

Price includes p&p to *mainland U.K.
