Pineapple Guava

Not a lot of flowers.  Back behind a couple beds I've tucked away Feijoa sellowiana (officially called Acca sellowiana now but none uses it), pineapple guava, a tropical tasting fruit for colder winters.
Native to Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay where it is common in the mountains Feijoa is a slow growing evergreen that can be trained to a massive hedge or wind break in sun or partial shade. Mine are small and though I imagined mixing up guava jellies and pastries when I planted them, so far just two lonely flowers.
