Thanks I'll check them out!

I have multiple seedlings of red and Scarlett but still haven't tried the fruit. My largest is still probably 2 years away from flowering but curiosity is getting the better of me and I can't wait. I'd greatly appreciate anyone who has a few to ship to Oregon and willing to sell.

I'm having the problem of not having fruit photos of some of the longer to fruit species I grow. I'm just starting up a hobby nursery and have nice photos of my Chilean guavas but unfortunately don't have any photos of my Garcinias and Eugenia's fruiting. It would be great if their were more free stock photos of fruit for new growers to use. It sucks people can't be more honest and do stuff like this, makes it hard to trust listing accuracy.

My Chilean Guava (ugni molinae) is flowering for the first time this year. Its in 3 gallon pot and just over 2 ft tall. The flowers smell amazing and I hear you can make tea from the leaves. The leaves have a really pleasant smell when crushed.

I've had success with Chilean guavas (ugni molinae) I Planted a 3" potted seedling into a 5 gallon pot last June and it's already fruiting this year. It's over a foot tall and I have taken over a dozen cuttings of it. They didn't even blink at my 24f winter low unprotected. I'm waiting patiently for October to try the ripe berries.

I had a plant last year. The leaves are really smelly, to me kind of like tar. It started to fruit at about 9 months old after starting indoor really early. I only had about 8 fruits before winter shut down the flowering. They taste really tropical in flavor with a little bitter after taste. I heard the fruits taste better after the stems start to get woody.

The plants get minor frost damage at 31f. I lost the plant completely when temps hit their lowest at 28f. I took a cutting inside that rooted so Ill try again this year and see how they go. It definitely has a leg up on last year.
