Hi Craig, Is the native guava that you are referring to Eupomatia laurina or is it Rhodomyrtus psidiodes? I'm no expert but I believe both are bushfoods however the Rhodomyrtus requires specialist knowledge because it can cause permanent eyesight damage. Maybe a bushfoods forum might be the place to ask.

Hi dekka,
Im not really sure,as its only said "native guava" with a little of explanation about the plant,without referring familly name of the tree,however they have another native guava listed in the website wich is Rhodomyrtus psidiodes(forestly tube for sale) with the same description as the native guava plant that i bought,so im thinking it might be Rhodomyrtus (the one that i bought).
I've been trying called the nursery to get some knowledge about this plants but only can reach the answering machine.
I guess i just have to change my plan about having this guava tree in my yard,not taking chance with any poison living in the yard,as theres also kids around the house.
Thank You for Your help,
Craig.

Eupomatia l. is not poisonous but Rhodomyrtus p. is poisonous. It can cause vomiting and diarhhea.
