Ugni molinae 'Ka-Pow'

 

Chilean Guava 'Ka-Pow'

Guava 'Ka-Pow! Is a new form bred in Cornwall by Steve Yandall. I first came across it when I visited his nursery a few years back. It has aromatic foliage and delicious berries in late summer. This variety was named by James Wong, he first saw it on my Twitter feed! Chilean Guava berries look like blueberries and taste like wild strawberries
