China pear guava

    28 responses

Db starts with ...
Has anyone tasted China Pear guava from Daleys? I would like to know how does it's taste compare with other guavas like Mexican cream or Hawaiian guava from Daleys.. Daleys describe it as 'with exceptional flavour'. Recently I bought China pear guava tree from Daleys and within 2 months it is already outgrowing its big pot and roots are coming out of pot holes.. I was thinking to transfer it in ground if taste is better than Mexican cream and Hawaiian guava which I'm already growing in ground. But if it tastes similar, I'll keep it in pot and can plant something else in that place.. Anyone?

Db I have a few few guavas and have always been familiar with hong kong and hawaiin pinks.To answer a question in another thread cherry guavas can reach about 8m in the tropics if kept in good conditions but are usually much smaller.Ferals on the Atherton Tablelands can be less than 1m when many years old.In cooler places they are much smaller and can easily be pruned to 1.5m.
Back to tropicals.I bought a pink china pear several years ago and it has smaller fruit than hawaiin,with a stronger smell and has softer seeds.I rate mexican cream ahead of the pinks but thye giant thai behind when eaten ripe.I have a pineapple brazilian that is way better than all the rest.Recently I acquired a yellow fleshed argentinian and I am assured is the next level up.
The moral of my story is thatI don't know which is the real china pear.

Db the reds are variable in fruit colour and may have some pinkish in the flesh colour.Unfortunately my brazilian pineapple guava appears to be a hybrid with tiny soft seeds that seem to be unviable.The seeds don't germinate.It is definately closest to P.guineense.

A China Pear dropped off the tree;it was yellow and yielding to touch but still quite firm when cut. The flavour is mild though it has the classic guava fragrance.

Looks good enough MaryT. How would you rate it in comparison to your other varieties? My CP's are still a couple of months away from being ready.

VF my Mexican Cream is taking forever to ripen and some were eaten by ? so have yet to try a properly ripe one. Still I think they would be sweeter than the China Pear from the taste of the green ones. The Hawaiians fell off while small though there are still a couple left on the tree. I am not holding my breath as winter has truly set in. These are my first fruits so am hoping they will perform better next year.

I guess mine will probably be bland too, as they'll be doing most of their growing in winter. And very true MaryT, there's always next year. :)

eh probably about 40cm once I cut it back. Shouldn't cost more than 25$ to ship express. Has a big root system. It came from Daleys, I didn't grow it from seed.

Send me an email otherwise I'm likely to forget about it, I do that.

Go to your paypal account, select send money, and type my email into the box that says to. Select the family and friends option. Add 25$ to the box that says amount, and I should get a confirmation email from paypal pretty much straight away.

I am a river to my people.

I still haven't received money into my paypal account, it was only a little over 10$ ship.

Don't worry about the postage cost, return the favor to somebody else one day.

Db at last one Hawaiian made it to maturity and I am giving it 10/10!! Everything I expected a guava to be - fragrant (perfumed the whole room), sweet and juicy with just a hint of sour. I LOVE it and unless my China Pear and Mexican Cream improve significantly next year the Hawaiian is the best of them all. This tree suffered a set back and nearly died so it's much smaller than the others. Goes to show good things come in small packages:)

Hawaiian is very good.

Ruby Supreme and the new cv summer red are supposed to be the best of the Hawaiian types.

Don't think much of the Brazilian.

Heres a recent pick of my first Mexican Cream - seeds were still hard as a rock - not soft as said - but very tasty and creamy with strong guava smell -
here are 2 pics of Mexican cut and Mexican next to a bulbouse Indian which could be a china pear??? Not tasted latter yet but last year the indian was tasty - no smell and softer seeds than Mexican or cherry guavas.I hate those hard seeds.
