Guava trees are small tropical evergreen trees that produce small and fragrant fruits called Guavas. Since they are tropical, the leaves are large leaves and copper-colored flaky bark. Guavas are 2-5 inches long, round to oval shaped and prominent fragrance. Depending on the variety, the skin is rough and bitter or soft and sweet and varying thickness. The pulp is sweet or sour and white to pink. Locate the seeds in the central pulp.
The fruit is very healthy and nutritious, eat them fresh or use as a key ingredient. Use the juice of the fruit in punch drinks, hot or cold sauces, as well as candy, dried snacks, deserts, fruit bars, and much more.
A Guava tree grows in the full sun or where it receives morning sun and afternoon shade. Plant in well draining soils and water once or twice a week depending of time of years. Fertilize with fruit tree foods and prune to manage size and tree form. Remove dry, crossing, lower, inner, and older branches.
