The Bambina Pineapple Guava (Acca sellowiana 'Bambina') is a compact and highly fruitful cultivar of the pineapple guava, prized for its ornamental value, striking flowers, and delicious, exotic fruit. This evergreen shrub offers year-round interest with its attractive foliage and unique growth habit, making it an excellent choice for gardeners seeking to add both visual appeal and edible rewards to their landscapes.
The Bambina Pineapple Guava is a small, compact shrub that typically reaches heights of 4-6 feet and a similar width. The plant features evergreen, gray-green, oval-shaped leaves that are thick and leathery, with a silvery underside that provides a striking contrast in the landscape. This slow-growing shrub is well-suited to a variety of landscape uses, including borders, accent plantings, and even container gardens.
This hardy and adaptable plant thrives in a range of growing conditions, flourishing in both full sun and partial shade. It prefers well-draining soil and is relatively drought-tolerant once established, making it a low-maintenance option for gardeners.
The Bambina Pineapple Guava is renowned for its large, showy flowers that bloom in late spring to early summer. The flowers feature four to six fleshy petals that are white on the inside and a striking purplish-red on the outside, surrounding a central mass of long, red stamens. The flowers are not only visually appealing but also have a subtly sweet fragrance, attracting pollinators such as bees and hummingbirds to the garden.
Following the flowering stage, the Bambina Pineapple Guava produces small, egg-shaped fruit that ripens in late summer to early fall. The fruit is green when young, turning a pale green or yellowish color as it matures. The flesh of the fruit has a smooth, custard-like texture and a unique, tropical flavor that is a blend of pineapple, guava, and strawberry. The fruit can be eaten fresh, used in smoothies, or incorporated into various culinary dishes, making it a rewarding addition to the home garden.
