Medium round fruit 50mm diameter. Skin light: yellow, slightly blushed with red. Flesh creamy white, thick, very sweet, fine-textured, excellent for dessert. Seed cavity small with relatively soft seeds. Tree upright.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
Other Names: Pera, Amrood, Gawafa

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.

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!

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.
