Qld Fruit Fly loves the fruit what can i say in a Brisbane environment, i saw many a fruit fly infested Guava which i had to throw away with 2nd season. Its a fast growing tree it can grow out of control, haven't tasted fruit as FFly eggs always stung

Not as vigorous as the Hawaiian guava but just beautiful.

Growing well in pot - will pot up in springUpdate 6 May 2016 photo of fruit close to ready - gong yellower and getting larger too. I cant wait to try it - hoping for soft edible seeds.
CARLINGFORD, NSW, Australia
Very good soft sweet taste, sweeter than Hawaiian pink. Good crop. However, too much trouble with fruit fly, bush rats and fruit bats, so have removed tree to make room for others.
Miranda, NSW, Australia
Love the fruit. From Daleys, growing in a bonsai bag & looks fantastic. Hopefully will fruit next year
Fairfield, VIC, Australia
Planted (in Melbourne) in a sheltered north facing part of the garden - some shade from street trees - I don't think I gave it enough water last summer - will do better this year!
Unanderra, NSW, Australia
Attractive, hardy, shrubs with nice tasting fruits which need to be bagged to avoid fruit fly in my climate. Fruits not as nice as the hawaian guava.

When fruit are just starting to develop, protect them from fatal insects by tying a clear plastic bag around individual fruit and letting the fruit grow and mature with the bag still around it. You will be pleasantly surprised by the size and flavour.
