This native of the American tropics is enjoyed as a jelly, juice, and fresh fruit. The pulp is smooth, sweet, and extremely aromatic. The trees are heavy producers and begin fruiting in their first year. Then ripen from March - October.

We Prune Your Tree Throughout Its Life… NOT just when we ship it!

So instead of a tree that resembles a fishing pole, you get one that has well developed branches and is hefty enough to start supporting fruit production.

The heights advertised are generally after we prune your tree one last time, unless otherwise noted. So the height you pay for is what you receive.

Plus we don’t include the pot or root length in our measurements. This can give you an extra 1-2 ft. in height.

Our larger trees can be one to three years older than our smaller ones and should give you fruit the first season.

You can easily grow Delicious Guava Fruit Indoors or Out.

A mature Guava tree can produce 40 - 70 lbs of fruit per year. Even a patio tree kept at 4-6 ft can give you plenty to enjoy and share.

Guava trees can grow outdoors in zones 8-10, or indoors in colder areas. Just bring your potted tree indoors for the winter. It makes a great house plant.

The guava is self-pollinating. Like most self-pollinating fruit trees, you will get even more production with a second one to cross-pollinate with.

Your tree is drought tolerant but will produce more fruit if watered regularly. It will easily adapt to most soil conditions and enjoys full sunlight. Guava trees love organic fertilizer and will use it to grow even quicker and fruit even heavier.

The guava fruit is round to pear-shaped and can grow between 2-4 inches long. When ripe, the rind softens and is edible. The inner flesh is ruby in color and has a soft, pulpy texture. The fruit have a delicious sweet flavor and pleasant aroma. In warmer climates the fruit will ripen year-round.

Not all Guava trees are the same. Your tree will typically start to fruit the first year. Some seed grown varieties take 5-8 years. Your Guava Tree is non-GMO... can easily be grown organically... and has the best flavor and texture that we have found.

Some nurseries send Guava trees with the dirt washed off the soil. This is not healthy for tropical plants. That's why your tree arrives in a large container with a full, vibrant root system intact. It's ready to explode with new growth. Plus your tree has been pruned throughout it's life, not just when we ship it. Some nurseries advertise a tall height, then cut 1/3rd off, in order to save on their shipping cost. You should get what you pay for. That includes a tree that will give you the best and quickest fruit possible, as well as a lifetime of enjoyment.

It's Easy to Plant your Guava Tree


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Guava Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Guava Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Guava Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Extremely satisfied with FGT team, great job, you guys rock !

Beautiful Tree
This dwarf Guava arrived already very nearly it's full height (circa 6.5 feet), and after putting it in a mixture of compost, cow manure and decent soil, it has thrived and already grown some, although it's only been a few months. I'm hoping for a harvest this coming year, but the tree was in amazingly good shape for having been shipped.

We purchased our tree in spring 2014 and is still growing great. We picked 3 guavas about 3 months later. I'm impressed with this tree and learned it is very healthy fruit.

Disappointing
The guava tree did not survive. When I got it, it didn't look that great. After a couple of months, it died.
The mango and citrus tree are doing fine.
I guess it was too delicate.

Great so far
I love unusual plants and received this two weeks ago I re potted it right away. It arrived much larger than I expected and no damage. I kept it in shade for a couple of days to adjust and then put it out in the sun. It kept wilting pretty fast. I don't think I was watering it enough. I increased the water and it is doing great in full sun now. It has put out a lot of new growth and looks very healthy. I am so happy with it that I just ordered a Lychee Tree today. After that I am planning to get a Mango Tree ;-) Hopefully here is SE Texas they can stay outside most of the Winter. I can't wait to get it and hope that I am as pleased. I am a very satisfied customer !!!

happy tree,. happy me
I ordered a tropic fruit Guava, It seemed a little too ambitious to my growing zone 8, but that baby seems very happy at summer time, it already had more than 10 little guavas on the tree, OMG, I am jumping, dancing around the tree. I ordered a green house just for that baby, so when winter comes, it gets some protection. I will keep post for the progress.

I think I have it for almost a month now. At 1st I was excited;then nervous if it will survive after the travel. It looks good when it arrived then falling leaves. it is still inside the house and looking good with new leaves from bottom to top. I am happy, happy, happy seeing those new leaves. Now I am ready to replant to it's new container that I also bought from you. I am again excited and nervous in this process. ? How will I apply the round fertilizer? I need to get a soil planting as well. Well, It's looking great. love it

my tree seems to be dying, lost all the leaves. 1/4 of the trunk was dead, wich I cut off, the bottom of the trunk is still alive. I still have the plant in the container that came in. What can I do to save it?
A shopper on Oct 17, 2014
Best Answer: It might be the weather station changing, mine was striving was so beautiful it was growing a few guavas already , they did not mature, weather station change came in and lost all leaves , temperatures were in the 40s & 50s degrees F, even though I try covering it with plastic bags it did not survive by the beginning of spring 2014 , this trees even though they tell you they are tolerant to cold temperatures ,they are not, same thing happen with the mango tree that I bought the previous year and I live in Texas where the cold temperatures are not that extreme.

Best Answer: Yes you can grow Guava Trees in New Mexico. In zones 8 - 11 they can survive planted outdoors in the ground. In zones 4 - 7 they need to be planted in a pot and brought indoors during cold spells.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.





Potted Tree Dormant Tree Bare Root Tree

Most dormant trees shipped in the
late fall through spring arrive bare root

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Tree before pruning Tree after pruning Rose before pruning Rose after pruning
Maple Tree before pruning Maple Tree after pruning 3 gallon Knockout Rose before pruning 3 gallon Knockout Rose after pruning

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
