Guava Tree

$75.00

This plant is available for store pickup only.

Guava is a small tree with a multi-stemmed trunk. It has mottled green bark and long, 3- to 7-inch serrated leaves that sit atop a wide, short canopy. The white flowers produce oval or pear-shaped fruits 2 to 5 inches in size. The taste and colour of the fruit differ based on the variety.

Guava plants are native to the tropical and subtropical Americas and will do best in conditions that mimic those regions. They like moderately warm, humid conditions and react badly to any hint of cold or to desert-like heat. Potted plants can grow well on a warm patio or deck during the warmer months, then moved indoors for the winter.

Getting indoor guava plants to flower and produce fruit is a hit-or-miss proposition, so the plants are generally grown as novelty specimens.

Plants and pots sold separately.

Bright indirect light to bright direct.

Water weekly, keeping the soil moist, but not soggy. Water thoroughly when the surface of the soil is dry.

No - Can cause mouth irritation and digestive reaction.

This plant is very sensitive to cold and will succumb to the smallest hint of frost, especially when the plants are young. If you place your guava tree outside for the summer, be sure to bring it in well before the first hint of frost.
