Fruit the 1st Year - not the 8th

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. . 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 roots. 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.

Order yours today.





Guava Tree 'Ruby Supreme' Pollination

Guava Trees 'Ruby Supreme' are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Guava Tree 'Ruby Supreme' will drastically increase the size of your crop.

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.

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.

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 !!!

Abundent and large fruit!
I wanted a strawberry guava but FGT was out of them and asked if I wanted a replacement or refund. I chose a replacement. I planted the small tree in mid May 2015. The tree started to bear fruit this fall (2016) and the fruit kept growing and growing. The fruit was so plentiful that I braced the limbs to prevent them from breaking! The seeds are plentiful and hard as stones, unlike the strawberry guava seeds that I remember just eating. The flavor is wonderful and sweet if left to ripen fully on the tree. The fruit is ripe when you tug it slightly and falls right into your hand. Check the fruit for worms since wasps lay their eggs in them. I had to give away fruit it was so plentiful! I canned guava paste and will be gifting them this Christmas. This Spring a proper pruning is in order since this tree is presently 10 feet tall!
My honey is 5'10". My guava must be 10'!

Nice!
I have to admit the leaves were falling off and brown when i got it... i planted it anyway... watered it in and hoped for the best.. thinking I would just give it a week and see what happens before mentioning anything.... I sure am glad I did!... it bounced back with the vibrancy of a happy plant. It only took it a few days to shed all it leaves, but within a week it was showing promise...and 2-3 weeks... wow!... i'm glad i bought this, can't wait to taste the fruit

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Guava Tree 'Ruby Supreme'


Guava Tree 'Ruby Supreme' Planting Diretions

The guava tree (Psidium guajava 'Ruby Supreme’) is a tropical tree commonly found in areas like Hawaii, the Virgin Islands, Texas and Florida. The deliciously sweet fruit is commonly used in beverages, desserts and smoothies. The fast growing tree can mature to a height of 10 feet tall and roughly 15 feet wide. It can be grown outside in zones 8-11, but it could also be container grown for zones 4-11 and brought indoors when the winter season approaches. If you are lucky enough to live in an area where the tree can be planted outside, be sure to find a spot where the tree will have an ample amount of space. A soil pH range between 5.0-7.0 is ideal.

 

Choosing a location: Guava is a tropical native tree so be sure to select a spot that has full sun. Drainage is essential so avoid areas where water may pool. To test your location for drainage, you can dig a 1 foot wide by 1 foot deep hole and fill it with water. After an hour, if there is any water retained, you will need to amend your soil with sand and perlite to improve the drainage.

 

Planting directions (in ground):
1) Make your hole twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep.
2) Carefully place your tree into the hole and hold it straight as you begin to back fill the hole.
3) Tamp down on the soil with your hand as you back fill to prevent any air pockets from forming.
4) Water the planting site to help settle the soil and then spread a 2-3 inch layer of mulch to help conserve moisture and prevent competitive weeds from growing. Wood chips or bark pieces will suffice.

 

Planting directions (potted): Like goldfish, a guava tree will only grow to as big as the space it’s allotted. The pot will confine the roots allowing you to keep the tree to a smaller more maintainable height.

1) It is not recommended to get a pot much bigger than the one the tree is delivered in. Select a pot that is the same size, or about 2-3 inches larger (at most), than its existing pot. 
2) Be sure that there is an adequate amount of drainage holes in the bottom of the pot, drainage is essential to the tree’s survival. You can also line the bottom of your pot with a couple inches of gravel/pebbles to assure proper drainage of the soil.
3) A citrus or an organic potting soil is best for the guava. Regular potting soil can be a bit heavier and therefore retain more moisture.  The extra moisture can be harmful to the guava’s roots. Be sure to press down as you fill in the pot with soil to avoid air pockets.
4) Place your tree next to a south facing window to ensure it gets the full sun exposure it needs.
*Tip* The tree will most likely require re-potting once a year.

 

Watering: Give your guava tree a deep soaking and then hold off on watering again until the top two inches of the soil begins to dry. These trees will like to dry slightly in between waterings. In the hotter seasons you might need to water more frequently but DO NOT overly saturate the soil. Guava (like citrus) hate to have “wet feet” and are susceptible to root rot if left in standing water.

Potted guava also likes to dry slightly in between waterings. If the top 2-3 inches of the soil feels like it’s starting to dry out, add just enough water to where you see it escaping the drainage holes and stop.

 

Pruning: You can trim your guava tree throughout the year. Using sterilized cutters, remove any low growths that appear near the base of the tree. This will encourage a healthier, stronger trunk making a more stable tree. Prune away any branches that are crossing and dead limbs. Potted guava should not require much pruning but it can be done to maintain a particular shape.

 

Fertilizing: Guava are semi-heavy feeders and will require fertilizing once every 1-2 months in its younger years. Once the tree becomes more established, it will only need to be fertilized 3-4 times a year. Just before the growing season begins, work a 6-6-6-2 formula into the soil. Guava likes high levels of nitrogen, phosphoric acid, potash, and magnesium for the best results. Potted guava will benefit from being fed an organic, granular fertilizer every three months.

jignesh m on Nov 27, 2016
I encountered these trees and fruit in the wild in Hawaii. The aroma of the fruit and the exquisite taste were enough to inspire me to try to find this and grow it where I live, Houston, TX. They grew so abundantly and easily in the wild and were such prolific fruit producers I am hoping to achieve something even remotely close here and enjoy the fruit.

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.
Can I grow this tree in Northern Georgia(Atlanta) in a greenhouse?
Carlos D on Mar 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would think so. I have had one for two years and it produces a lot of fruit. I live in the northern suburbs of Houston Texas. I grow mine in a large pot and keep it outside most of the year. On nights that get below 50 I put it in the garage. That doesn't happen often here. If you are able to bring it out in warm weather I am sure it would be happy. If you grow it in a green house all the time you would need a way to pollenate the flowers. Good luck.

How tall does the tree get?
A shopper on Jun 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: In the ground or container? FGT shows this info for ground plantings. For containers you can keep the tree at a manageable size. You'll want to up the size of the pot every year or two until mature. You can keep it in an 18-20 in diameter pot, where my tree grew to about 6 ft wide and was topped at about 5ft.

How many gallons is the 3-4 foot tree?
Betty J on May 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought mine last June. I would say the pot was probably just one gallon. But be prepared for rapid growth. Mine was around 4 feet when I got it. It is now over 7 feet. Last year I had 2 fruit. It has over a dozen fruit already and keeps blooming. I also bought a lychee tree that is struggling but my guava can't be beat. I have mine in a 10 gallon container now. It is so top heavy I had to stake it to keep it from blowing over. Love this guava!

You are in zone 7b. It is very easy to grow but I would suggest keeping it in a pot. Good luck
what type of soil for container growing? citrus potting mix?
Paul G on Apr 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You will need a rich, fast draining soil which should be kept moist. You can try the Fast Growing Trees tropical plant soil mix to get an idea of the proper texture. If you make your own mix make sure to use agricultural grade sand in the mix, not construction sand. I was able to grow one guava the first year I ordered it and six guavas the second year. It requires a long growing season though which is difficult to provide up north.

BEST ANSWER: This tree can go down to a zone 8 which is 10-20 degrees. I would not suggest that temperature frequently or even for 4 hours. If you are dealing with these temperatures you could wrap your tree in burlap for further protection.
I live in Texas zone 8a, so according to description it should survive outdoors but also its confusing as it can only handle 10-20 degree not more than 4 hours, coz sometimes there are extended hours of cold. I've got a pomegranate tree from you guys with same description and I planted it outside anyways, but I'm happy to see it looses leaves in winter but it sprout right back in spring, shall I expect the same for guava tree?
