If those leaves are slightly succulent, I'd agree that I is probably one of the jungle cactus the sometimes call "night blooming ceres",  which is actually probably a Hylocerus or something like that.  In low light they grow a viny tubular stem, reaching for light, but in bright light, that tubular growth will grow "leaves", which are actually wide leafy stems.  They need very bright light, but only cool morning sun, liking mostly bright shade outside.  Keep them above 34 deg F.  They usually will bloom if given a summer outside and lightly fertilized.  They can take lower light and cooler drier conditions in winter.

Juliet, It looks like something I have. I believe it is one of the Cereus family. BUT, I think yours NEEDS sun... hence the metamorphosis. I will bet that Grant or Chuck, or Bob will know for sure. I also would like to know .

Can anyone tell me the name of this plant?  I think it has gone through some kind of metamorphosis.  I just call it my funky plant.  It hates the sun.

The fruit from the pineapple guava is not picked. It falls, which is the sign it is ready to eat, and then you pick it up. 

In Australia, we are all under the impression it is a New Zealand plant, which I now see, turns out to be wrong.

GReat Info Chuck.  Thanks.

Oh, and you can pull off the petals to eat, without damaging the fruit embryo so you can really get two different treats at different times, the flowers in spring and the fruit in fall.

The Pineapple Guava is one of several totally different fruits that are called Guava.  The others are all tropical, but the Feijoa is sub tropical and grows fine in zone 8, to the low teens F.  It is a small bushy tree with oval evergreen silverly leaves and cool orangish bark, very attractive.  They come from Argentina, I think and would be considered  soil tolerant and very drought resistant once established  The flower petals in the picture are very edible and taste very sweet and kind of minty, almost like mint candy. The fruit is egg shaped and sized and when just starting to soften, is very good, sort of intermediate between a banana and pineapple in flavor.  You just cut them in half and scoop out the soft flesh with a spoon.  They don't turn color when ripening, stay dark green,  so you have to go by feel.  I think they fruit best with another for pollination.

Will, it was in the yard when she bought the house.   I am also considering buying a guava and planting the seeds.  Just to see.  I don't think she has ever seen fruit on it since it needs another one to be cross pollenated.  Isn't that how it works?
