Question & Answer
Could you let me know if this is an invasive type of plant. From: PROSERPINE QLD
They can self seed. You can prevent them from spreading by netting your tree as the fruits mature, this will prevent any birds, bats or other animals from spreading the seeds and will also keep your fruit free from fruit fly. Have a look at the fruit saver nets as these will work perfectly.
Customer Comments on Guava - Mexican Cream
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
