Lemon Guava (Psidium littorale) Tropical Fruit Tree
The Lemon Guava is a tasty tropical tree, with sweet, yellow fruit arrives in abundance from summer through fall. Lemon Guavas are mainly eaten raw but can also be cooked. The pulp is often used in fruit salads, smoothies, or in a marinade. Lemon guavas, like most guava varieties, contain a high amount of vitamin A and folate. It also contains vitamins C (even greater amounts are in the skin) and B-complex vitamins as well as minerals like potassium. It can be grown successfully as a potted plant in patio gardens.
It will fruit almost anywhere if protected from hard freezes. Trees grow well in full sun and with ample water, although short periods of drought will not harm the plant. Lots of water is needed during fruit development and for proper ripening to occur.
Fruit is ready to pick when completely yellow or nearly completely yellow. The fruit should also easily detach from the tree with a light pull when it is ready.
