Ugni ( Tazziberry )

Ugni Molinae

Ugni ( Tazziberry ) For Sale (Size: Medium) (Cutting Grown)

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.
Other Names: Chilean Guava

Also called Chilean guava. This is just a generic cutting. It's only a novelty fruit here. It requires more chill than we get here, to get more than a cup of fruit from 3 bushes. The fruit is really tasty though. Maybe don't bother if you have limited ...

have 100 of these planted around my house on the edge of the veranda to form an edible hedge.Quite scragly, but hoping they toughen up and bush up a bit. will prune them shortly to encourage more growth and strike some cuttings.

All 3 dried over a 2yr period. They were in full sun and it's very windy here. I would recommend a sheltered spot with afternoon shade in hot climates.
