Grow Delicious Tropical Fruit

Easily Grown Indoors or Out - Depending on Your Zone
Guava trees can grow outdoors or indoors in colder areas. Just bring your potted tree indoors for the winter. It makes a great houseplant. The guava is self-pollinating. Like most self-pollinating fruit trees, you will get even more production with a second one - in order to cross-pollinate.

Delicious Fruit
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 has a sweet flavor and a pleasant aroma. In warmer climates, the fruit will ripen year-round. 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.

Easy Growing
This 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.

Why Our Guava Trees are Superior
You'll get fruit the 1st year - not the 8th. 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 its life, not just when we ship it. Some nurseries advertise a tall height, then cut 1/3 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.

Pollination Info

Guava Tree 'Ruby Supreme' Pollination

Guava Tree 'Ruby Supreme's 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.

Planting & Care

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 or 8-8-8 fertilizer into the soil. Guavas like high levels of nitrogen, phosphoric acid, potash, and magnesium for the best results. Potted guavas will benefit from being fed an organic, granular fertilizer every three months.

FAQs

How long does it take for a guava tree to bear fruit?

When grown from seed, guavas take around 3-8 years to start producing fruit. Grafted guavas will take about 2-3 years to produce fruit. How soon your tree starts producing depends largely on the environment and age of the tree.

How big does a guava tree get?

Guava trees grow to be around 10 feet tall and 15 feet wide.

Where is the best place to plant a guava tree?

Guavas need heat and a fair amount of moisture to thrive. They can be grown in-ground in Zones 9-11 or in containers in cooler climates, so they can be protected in the winter.

Do guava trees need a lot of water?

Guava trees will need regular waterings during their growing season and don’t thrive in very dry climates. The exact amount of water needed will vary by location and weather conditions.
