Strawberry Guava Tree Information and Care

Also called the Cattley or Peruvian guava, the Strawberry guava is native to Brazil, called araçá in South America. The fruit is described to be like passion fruit mixes with strawberry. Strawberry guava fruits can be eaten whole, but remove the skin for sweeter flavor. There is about 4 to 5 tiny firm seeds in the center of the fruit. Seeds become softer as the fruit ripen.

In the Spring, trees produce tiny white flower blossoms that follow by summer fruit harvest. The tree is very attractive. Harvest fruits before birds get to them, and allow them to ripe indoors.

Plant trees in the full Sun as close as 6 feet apart, but allow for more space to let trees spread out. They can be used as a privacy hedge or informal screen.

Fertilize this evergreen tree, seasonally with citrus food. This granular fertilizer provides the same nutrients guavas need. To promote growth use a fertilizer with more nitrogen. To increase flowers and fruit, use a fertilizer with more phosphorus and potassium. Till the top layer of the soil before amending fertilizer, and then water the trees to allow fertilizer to penetrate the soil.

Water guava trees regularly until established. When planted in most loam clay soils, water young trees weekly during the Spring and cooler part of the year. Increase the frequency of irrigation to twice per week in the hot summer. Reduce the frequency in the fall and find a nice balance during the Winter depending on rains.

Prune your Strawberry guava in the Winter, and thin as needed. They can tolerate the cold, but do not have deep aggressive root systems. Therefore, be care in areas with high winds. Do not let them get too top heavy, try to balance their center of gravity.
