An unusual and tasty wild guava from the Brazilian Amazon. Rare in cultivation. Grows into a small tree, leaves are very interesting and distinctive, with wavy margins.
Fruit grow to 2-3", with an acidic, sour but guava-like flavor. Its juice is concentrated and must be diluted and sweetened to produce a delicious drink. The fruit is processed into ice cream sorbet, gelatins and candies. A great container specimen. Zones 9 to 11.
