The guava tree, also known as Psidium Guajava, is a small tropical tree or shrub that is native to Central America and Mexico. It is now widely cultivated in many tropical and subtropical regions around the world. Guava trees can grow to a height of 20-25 feet, and they have smooth, light gray bark, and glossy, dark green leaves. The tree produces white five-petaled flowers that bloom year-round.
The fruit of the white guava tree is round to oval in shape, and it can be as small as an apple or as large as a grapefruit. The skin of the fruit is light green and the flesh is white. The fruit has a sweet, aromatic flavor and a soft, grainy texture. Guava fruit is a good source of vitamin C, vitamin A, and dietary fiber.
Guava trees are relatively hardy and can be grown in a variety of soils, but they prefer well-draining, acidic soils. They can tolerate a wide range of temperatures, but prefer warm, humid conditions. They can grow well in full sun or partial shade. Guava trees can be propagated by seed or by rooting cuttings.
The tree is widely cultivated for its fruit, which is used in a variety of ways, such as eating fresh, making jams, jellies, and preserves, and in drinks and desserts. In addition to that, the leaves of the tree are also used for medicinal purposes. Guava leaves contain compounds that have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and they have been used traditionally to treat diarrhea, stomach problems, and other ailments.
Planting and Care
Planting and Care Guide
In Ground- Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is parallel with the ground level. Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated upright, use the excavated soil to back fill around the root ball, tamp down to ensure air pockets are eliminated, thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. A 2-3 inch layer of organic hardwood mulch is strongly recommended, it will help retain moisture and discourage weed growth.
Container Pot - White Guava Tree is container friendly and can bear fruit as a potted plant, a 15g to 25g container is recommended for optimal production, in regions where night temperatures drop below 35 degrees, do bring the tree indoors during the winter season.
LIGHT EXPOSURE - Thrives in FULL SUN
WATER - In ground water twice a week for the first growing season, once established rain water will suffice. Potted plants water twice a week first year, increase frequency as plant matures.
FERTILIZING – No need to fertilize right away, We fertilize our plants during the production phase with slow release fertilizer which can last an additional 2-3 months supplying residual nutrients to the plant.
Guava Trees are heavy feeders, You may use a fertilizer formulated for fruit trees, preferably a slow release fertilizer 180 days duration, fertilize during spring or fall base on label instructions.
INSECTS OR DESEASES - Here’s another plus, this fruit tree is not regularly affected by pests, however in the event that scale, mealy bugs, or mites are found to affect the plant, they can be controlled by applying horticultural neem oil that can be sprayed directly onto the insects, A second and third treatment, when using oils, will be necessary. Space out the sprays at 2 weeks intervals to break up the mealybug life cycle.
