CHILEAN GUAVA (Myrtus ugni)
This wonderful shrub is an aromatic evergreen bush that grows to about 1.5m. It can be grown as a border plant or hedge, and should be planted where you can appreciate the aroma. In summer it is covered in fluffy white flowers followed by pea-sized berries which are tangy little flavour bombs. Best eaten alone to really appreciate the flavour, or made into a unique jam. Will grow in shade and tolerate frost. Keep moist and shelter from wind. Prune hard for first two years.
