We make guava leaf tea to help with cough and flu. It is amazing at that.

Hi everyone-

I was just wondering about the reputability of sites like (NOT to be confused with and Has anyone bought from either of these sites?

Thank you!

I order regularly from Trade Winds Fruit. The seeds are fresh and sometimes even arrive half geminated because they are so fresh.

Has anyone tried

I've heard rarepalmseeds can be ok IF you order from the 'new' section btw

I have. Most of what I buy from them germinates fast. The seeds arrive fast in packets with clear instructions for each species. Good company IMO

As the title says, I am looking for cuttings from any of the 3 guava varieties listed below:

1. Honeymoon.
2. Jalisco red.
3. Red Malaysian.

If you have any of these for sale please let me know.

Though I haven't tasted any of these, in my notes I have marked the following as potentially great varieties following various discussions on this forum throughout the years:

1. Fairhaven
2. Sunset
3. Vernon

In that order.

This thread has a lot of great info about these varieties:

if you manage to find a Fairhaven or Sunset, please let me know  ;D

Mango scions will not survive for 2 weeks and I have tried 3 times. I know that Guava scions will survive 2 weeks easily.

How does this compare to tamarindus indica in taste?

Vastly different.

Hi Alex , i suggest:  if you have a chance,  get a seedling going, so you can graft later on. This variety is backordered at ZHPP , i heard they are filling 2019 orders right now for the nurseries and if available that too will be sold at a very high price. You will surely be able to get scions here from members next season.

Thanks Satya. There is nowhere nearby that sells sapodilla to get seeds from. Do you think it will be big enough in the fall to graft to(assuming that I find seeds)?

Eh...I dunno about that...I'm sure sapodillas grow faster in South Florida than here, but I started a seed in January and the plant is about 3" tall now.

For me they have been growing rather slowly from seed. Mine are 2 feet tall after 2 years (desert climate). I'm expecting them to pick up speed now that I have planted then in ground.

Pete Kanaris latest video touring Zill's farm in Costa Rica certainly got me excited about this fruit.

It's avaliable @

2. Mango (with chunks of plup)
3. Orange juice
4. White guava with milk
5. Coconut water

1. Mango
2. Cherimoya
3. Mangosteen
4. Peach
5. Golden Kiwi

I am growing 4 of these (purchased in pots at 3 ft tall) in a hot & dry climate. During the first year they grew slowly. In the second year, they started growing aggressively. They are now 3-4 times the size 2 and a half years later. They fruited in the second year, sadly the birds got to them all before me. I'm planning on adding more.

I'm interested as well.

Try my method for rooting tropical guavas:
