UGNI ( TAZZIBERRY )

Ugni Tazziberry For Sale Mega TubeBotanical Name: Ugni Molinae
Description

This popular little ornamental plant should be planted anywhere the strawberry aroma from the fruit can be appreciated. It is ideally grown as a low growing hedge or a container specimen. The small glossy dark-green leaves are tinged with a beautiful red growth when young. The plant becomes smothered with fluffy white flowers in summer and bears pea sized burgundy fruit, that lighten as they ripen, in the autumn. It is best eaten on its own to really appreciate the unique aromatic flavour.

The Dainty pale pink flowers have the most amazing scent....especially at night time....Lovely to put them near where you sit outside once the sun goes down.Plant them with some shelter from the afternoon sun.Delicious fruit,too - straight from the bush. | B Williams - Wantirna, VIC 16-Jan-2015

Originally purchased under the name of Cherrie Berrie (Spelling?).
The flavour of these little bombshells picked straight from the bush is wonderful! Will try and propagate more of this for the berries.

By all accounts, the fresh fruit is supposed to taste special - intense strawberry flavoured sherbet bombs sound good to me! Also great scent from flowering bushes.

Have 2 varieties growing: U.molinae, 'Chilean Guava' (the more common variety) and U. montana, 'Mountain Guava' - the fruit is supposedly very similar, but plants have some differences in their growth habit.

Will probably keep potted for another year until they get a bit more size on them. Are apparently acid-lovers, so will share a part of garden with the blueberries and camellia sinensis (other acid lovers).

Have been slow but steady growers throughout winter, and have bushed up nicely from looking twig like. Seem to like quite moist soil.

aka Chilean Guava. I fell in love with the description of these in the Diggers book. My first attempt grew well but then died quickly at the tail end of a summer. I bought another during that time and it suffered the same fate the following summer, despite being moved to a morning (full) sun only location. However, this time I took cuttings. I have 2 larger plants and took another cutting when i accidentally snapped a branch. They propagate easily. I'm now keeping them away from our summer sun. A filtered sun location away from the wind in a water holding soil seems adviseable for Perth.

All this and I'm yet to see or taste a little fruit

I came across some more of these plants from a local nursery, which bushier and healthy so I bought another 6. All are in the ground in my front yard as a mini hedge.


The plants are rather straggly and twiggy, but apparently young plants normally be like this.  They will become bushy once established. The roots are very dry, must plant out immediately after a long soak in the water. Hope they'll survive through the Winter months.

I have the chilean guava and a mountain guava. Both have such cute leaves, like a loose japanese box. I'm putting the mountain guava in a mixed screen. Can't wait for the fruit.

Sept 2013: Mountain guava doing ok, in a very windy spot. Chilean guava (ugni) was in full north west sun next to wall and died. Put in another in half sun and is full of buds.
