Guava - Ruby Red

Psidium guajava

Ruby Red Guava that is ripe and coloured up with the lovely ruby red colour it is known and selected for

A cutting grown selection with bright red coloured flesh. Excellent quality fruit for eating fresh or juicing.The foliage is delicate on young trees, and our potted plants are known for their older leaves to turn yellow and drop during transport to conserve energy. This is not a problem long term. With care and acclimatisation they will bounce back

Guava - Ruby Red

An update on my Guava, it gave a bumper crop! About 40 Guavas. Very impressed and it is not damaged by the winters at all. I dont know if I got lucky, or if its a cold hardy Guava. If you live in Melbourne I suggest to try growing this Guava.

I got this tree from you and I live in Melbourne Australia, and it took the winter very well, it's almost 2 meters tall and now flowering. It almost looked like a rainbow eucalyptus during the winter. I have it against the front of the house.
