Related to Surinam Cherry, Guaybilla is a tart fruit from Colombia, often used to make juice. The fruit is large, measuring 3 to 4 inches across, with a shiny, thin orange skin and 2 to 4 seeds inside. Guayabilla is a great source of vitamin C and packed with antioxidants, copper, magnesium, and vitamin C, to potentially decrease the risk of chronic diseases and promote healthy skin.

Rare in the US, Guayabilla is  shrub or small tree that reaches a height of 10 feet. It has droopy branches and fine elliptical leaves with deep veins, and produces clusters of white flowers.   To successfully grow Guayabilla in USDA Zones 10-11, plant in moist, acidic soil with high organic content. Despite being compact, the plant can be grown in a container, but beware of frosts and consider bringing indoors in colder areas. Pruning is not necessary for this
