So this is Ugni Molinae, which I believe, is a Chilean Guava. Dad gave him to me last weekend, he got it from Digger's as a part of his membership package. When he said guava, I pictured a guava like this, but according to Wikipedia, my guava is more like a cranberry, and the fruit will look like this.
The guava took four of us to plant it (lots of shovel leaning and discussion of where to dig the hole and who was going to dig the hole). We decided on a part shade position... we popped in lots of mature horse manure (courtesy of my parents, or at least their horses) and some lovely mulch around it. There was also quite a bit of discussion as to whether to water before or after mulching. I say before, but no one agreed with me.So far little Ugni has really been welcomed into the family. Felix has tried to decapitate it several times, and the chickens dug it up twice, earning themselves at least another week's worth of time out.
Good luck Ugni Molinae.
