Guava - Mexican Cream

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. | Sabrina Kleiman - Highvale, QLD 12-Mar-2007

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!

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 111 days 15hrs

Comments: - 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.

Fruit Harvest: 10 Fruit Per Year

First Fruited: 1 Years from purchase in pot

Pest Control: Tried using vegemite solution in soft drink bottle to trap fruit flies but not completely effective. One spray with lebaycid worked very well but this chemical no longer used. Fine netting works well but does not stop bush rats.

How well is your doing in Pot? My died last yr and i got new one today from a friend.
Edward3 says... [1779 days 7hrs ago]
Initially I had it in a pot and the top half died. So I put it in the ground and it recovered, and that's when I got 1 fruit. It seems to be very happy now and is growing well.
