Hawaiian Guava
Psidium guajava

Attractive small to medium, spreading, evergreen fruit tree. A light mottled trunk, faintly fragrant white flowers and masses of large aromatic fruit make this an appealing garden addition. Autumn ripening, the fruit are large, light yellow and fragrant with sweet pink flesh and are high in vitamin C.

Will tolerate many soil conditions and climates, but for best results, plant in full sun in rich, moist free-draining soil and mulch well. Does not like salty soil and is frost sensitive. Drought tolerant but fruits best when watered well from flowering to harvest.

The fruit is delicious eaten fresh or juiced or made into a jam.
