Chilean Guava Fruit


By Siris

Chilean Guava Fruit (Ugni molinae)

The last 2 berries on Ugni. It is only a new bush and had 5 of these small fruits. The ones I tasted about a month ago were hard, obviously not ripe then. They have taken about a month to ripen, now ripe, delicious, with an intense strawberry flavour. I am hoping for a bigger crop next year and have taken some cutting to try to increase the shrubs.
