Eupomatia laurina (Native Guava) is known as "Bolwarra" is an ancient Gondwana plant that has perfumed flowers and sweet tasting fruit. It grows well in sandy soils and will tolerate full sun but does best in morning sun or part shade. The fruit has a creamy pulp and has been compared to being a spicy guava. The fruit can be used in cooking, jams or beverages. The berries ripen over Winter from green to brown. Bees are attracted to its flowers and birds are attracted to its fruit. Being a littoral rainforest plant, Native Guava needs to be protected from frosts. Native Guava grows to a height of 5 metres. It can be used as a screening plant or kept in pots.
