Does anyone have any experience with Chilean black guava? I have seedlings that are ready for repotting. I have read they are cold hardy to 18*F but I assume that is for mature plants. Thanks, Woods

I overwintered my young chilean guava outside in seattle and it survived the cold november (20's) we had last year. Likely by fall, they should be old enough to survive zone 8-9 if it doesn't get especially cold - just be prepared to protect them if it freezes any colder than that. BTW - my hardy cuttings (rooted and unrooted) stay out all winter in the cutting box with no protection.

Arthur Lee gives a great summary on this fruit plant that makes you really want to grow it. Anyway I enjoy the strawberry and pineapple flavored ones and thought I would give the pineapple ones a try too. Best benefit is it does grow true from seed. Just use fresh and read up on how to propagate (3 weeks) and you should be smooth sailing!
