A rare variety we inherited from our neighbor. Malaysian Red Guava is a productive tree from Malaysia, producing medium size fruit for eating fresh off the tree or canning and preserving. The bumpy, round shaped fruit is maroon on the exterior with a unique pinkish-cream interior flesh. Fruit are floral, mild and aromatic with a sweet juicy pulp. 

Guava will grow happily, flower and fruit in a pot or in-ground. They add a tropical accent to any outdoor space, garden or patio. In cooler zones a containerized Guava can be relocated indoors for the winter months.

Guavas require well-draining soil and do best in tropical and sub-tropical areas. They are quite frost tender and will require protection from frost. Guavas have survived dry summers once established, they do best with regular deep watering, and should be allowed to dry to a depth of several inches before watering again. Lack of moisture will delay bloom and cause fruit to drop.
