Pineapple guava (Acca sellowiana), I've noticed no winter damage to these.
Cris, What varieties of Pineapple Guava have oyu had success with? I am in North Alabama (Zone 7B) and want to try to grow these on the east side of my house. Would roots be a concern?
The truth is I have no idea about variety, I just ordered a few off the net somewhere (Amazon? Ebay?) and planted them, it's been 5 or more years ago. I'm pretty sure they stay pretty small as trees,
maybe 10 feet tall on average, so I don't imagine the roots would be big enough to damage anything.
