Strawberry Guava Gives you More...
If you’re on the lookout for an exotic specimen to add to your garden of eclectic fruit trees, then look no further than the Strawberry Guava.  Resembling deep purple, shrunken pomegranates, the fruit’s taste and consistency is nothing of the sort.  We’ll get to that in a moment.  First, consider the convenient shape of the tree.  Maxing out at a sturdy 20 feet, it’s versatile.  You can grow it as a tree, a bush--it can even be fashioned into a stately, bonsai shape which suits it extremely well.  There are no lower limbs, so the twisty branches that ascend skyward add to the allure of this awesome beauty.  

Along with the maroon-tinted fruit, lovely blooms of white petals and yellow stamens will add the perfect complement of color.  As if that’s not enough, the Strawberry Guava is practically maintenance free.  The only work you’ll be doing is plucking all the delicious berries right from your tree!
Looks like Pomegranate, Tastes like Strawberry

Now for the sweet surprise.  The first time you see a Strawberry Guava, chances are you’ll imagine it tastes like a pomegranate, since it looks like a miniaturized version.  But plop a fresh one into your mouth right off the tree and a rush of strawberry fruit flavor is the first thing you’ll notice.  A mild sweetness, uniquely all its own gives the tender white flesh of the Strawberry Guava a distinctive taste that offers a diverse set of culinary possibilities.

From jellies and jams to tart fillings and sherbets, the Strawberry Guava is a flavor-filled fruit that will have you looking forward to the next harvest.

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

Will my Trees 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.

Most Fruiting Plants are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

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.
