I bought and ate some very good cherry x plum hybrids from walmart. I am going to try and germinate seeds myself.

I may have located it. I've planted out a specimen from Hawaii that looks just like it. It was called "Tropical".  I will report back in a year or so once it fruits to confirm.

I'm currently in Kauai, Hawaii on a late honeymoon. It sounds as if there are basically only two types of guavas here. Little yellow ones with pink flesh and invasive red ones from Brazil. I got some seeds!

They probably won't have the hybrid,  but they have Rubus neomexicanus and they are in Arizona. If you can help me ship a specimen from Arizona to Colorado, please let me know!!!

Thanks,

I don't,  however I just got myself a plant of Rubus deliciosus. I am on the hunt for Rubus trilobus and Rubus neomexicanus. There is a hybrid between deliciosus and trilobus though. I also want that.

Okay. I'm very interested in this.  I had read of a variety called tropical too, so you might be on the right track.

We might take a trip to southern california soon. If we do, I might try to relocate that tree and collect seeds and a cutting if I can find it again.

I am very interested in cuttings of Salmonberry, Tayberry, Boysenberries, and others. On a bit of a berry adventure right now. Oh and HoneyBerry. I guess they are blueberry-like in the honey suckle family. If anyone has any available let me know.

Sorry for the double post. I put my thread in the wrong sub forum initially.

The guava I'm talking about looks like the one marked "priceless" in the attached image.  It is extremely thin skinned, greenish/yellow when ripe, pink inside, and no bigger than a golf ball.  I tried looking at Excalibur fruit trees since they sell many types of guava but I don't see any called 'priceless'. 


This is the guava i'm looking for too. Just like the small yellow ones sold at walmart,  but light pink flesh instead of white. I found a tree in southern california once. It was delicious! Put the white ones to shame!
