Guava Trees

Guava

(Psidium guajava)

Guavas are a pretty common tropical fruit that are native to Mexico, Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean, however they’re currently grown in many tropical or subtropical regions of the world.

They are a decently vigorous tree that can range in height from 2 – 3m, but it’s not uncommon to see even larger trees, with some getting up to 6m in their lifetimes.

In some regions, some varieties (like the Cherry or Strawberry Guava) can be considered invasive weeds, so be cautious when planting and check for any local restrictions and regulations. Keep an eye on the growth of your guava tree and be sure to remove any unwanted shoots that may pop up in your yard.

As with most fruit trees, guavas will perform best in well-draining, nutrient rich soil, and with careful watering each season. They are meant to be an evergreen tree, but as they do prefer tropical to subtropical climates, they should be protected from frost as it can damage the leaves. In cooler areas, they may experience some leaf yellowing and leaf drop.

Despite their large size, guava fruit is actually botanically classified as a berry. They range in size from small to medium for the most part. Fruit typically ripens around late summer.
