Guava Yellow 200mm
Decorative foliaged evergreen shrub to small tree with
small sweet, flavoursome yellow skinned fruits.
FEATURES: Small pointed dark green foliage forms a bushy
shrub to small tree of around 2-5m by 1-2m. Flowers are
typical fluffy white stamens of the Myrtaceae family inside
4-5 white petals seen Spring to early Summer. Guava fruits
are highly variable. This selection, the Yellow Cherry Guava
has small sweet-tasting rounded yellow fruit with white or
pink flesh. In warm climates fruit is produced mostly in late
Summer and Autumn and in tropical climates plants may have
two crops per year.
CONDITIONS: Well suited to fertile, free draining soil in sunny
sites. Sensitive to frost.
FOR BEST RESULTS: Enrich soil with well rotted compost and
