Guava Yellow Cherry

Possums love my YCG. I've left it to grow leggy so that they can't climb as easily. Will bag it next time. Any other ideas?

Excellent highly productive small bush. Produces masses of sweet edible fruit just a bit smaller than a twenty cent piece. Grows well from seed. Highly recommended.
