Have planted in deep soil with plenty of acid compost, plant needs to not dry out (sadly mine got dug around by rabbits) which may have contributed more o its slow start. has nice small glossy leaves and am looking forward to hopefully getting fruit next year

A very healthy looking plant delivered in December. There is lots of tall foliage for the plant, about 3 feet tall, which came in a 2 litre pot. I think this stands a good chance of fruiting next year. I thought the plant was overpackaged when it arrived as the box was so tall, but no, the plant is jsut a very tall specimen for one grown in a tall pot. The rootball looks dense and healthy from what I can see. I'm looking forward to growing this for the attractive fragrant foliage and flowers, and to sample the fruit. I have been planning to expand my edible collection from chillies and strawberries, and none of the usual suspects such as cherries, apples, citrus, peaches etc. floated my boat, so this Chilean Guava could be perfect for something tasty and a bit different.
