CARE INSTRUCTIONS

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.

DESCRIPTION

The pink guava fruit grows on evergreen trees, and they grow up to 4 inches with an ovate shape. They have smooth green skin that can ripen to a yellowish-golden hue with pink flesh inside. The taste has been described as a cross between a papaya and a pear with a mild sweetness.

Guavas are incredibly versatile in that they can be eaten raw, baked into desserts, made into jams and drinks, or even used as a savory complement to meats and roasted vegetables. They are also high in Vitamin C and potassium.
