This is the blossom of the Strawberry Guava, which grows on a small tree or large bush.
It is one of the demonstration plants that are maintained by the California Rare Fruit Growers
in the Heritage Orchard at Prusch Park.
This gives a visitor or enthusiast a chance to see plants that they might grow
in a home or hobby orchard in the Santa Clara Valley.
These growing, fruiting plants were just one of the many interesting features of this park
that we were introduced to on our haiku excursion there.
