Ugni molinae

Chilean Guava

The Chilean Guava is often listed as Myrtus ugni.  It is native to Chile and southern Argentina and is a charming evergreen shrub with small glossy opposite leaves and white flowers.  It is best known for it's tasty sweet cranberry-like fruit sometimes called "Ugniberry".  It is hardly known in the southern U.S though perhaps better known in the Pacific Northwest.  It deserves to be tried in zones 8 and 9 where it would probably be best in somewhat sandy acid soil.  In the South where summers are hot it should probably be shaded from the hot afternoon sun.
