Strawberry or cherry guava. bushy shrub to small tree tall by 1 - wide. Pretty fluffy white flowers Spring to early Summer. Fruits on new growth so can be cut back.
To me, cherry guavas are quintessential Santa Barbara, bringing a burst of fall color to our coastal landscape.
Strawberry Guavas taste just like a common guava, except they’re much smaller, and have a much thinner skin. The darker red ones are the sweetest, yet all of them do have a slight element of acidic tart to them.
