Our plants allow you to enjoy fruit in the first year or so. All the Guava trees we offer are vegetatively propagated from healthy, vigorous, fruit producing mother stock, grown right here in our nursery. This means, you receive an exact clone, true in form and flavor and won’t have to wait four to five years to enjoy fresh homegrown fruit, as is often the case with seed grown or tissue culture plants. Truly a better tree!
The growth rate of Malaysian Red will vary greatly depending on soil type, sunlight, temperature and other factors. A few leaves are often trimmed prior to shipping to reduce transpiration and travel stress.
When you receive your new Guava, there is no need to worry about planting right away. Your new plant can be stored for a while by simply placing it in a bucket and moving it to a shady location, simply keep moist. This will give you plenty of time to select the ideal location for your new Guava.
