Guava Tree

Fruit the 1st Year - not the 8th

Height:

The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back and to produce fruit.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you results the first full 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 creamy white 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.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

Yes... Your Guava Tree can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

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.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

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.

By: lg tapiador
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.
