Longan & CRYSTAL Seedless Guava Scions
« on: February 27, 2018, 07:48:08 PM »
Most sought after crunchy Asian guava. It is sweet, tart and the crispiest guava I ever had. 95% of the guava trees I have has been top worked to Crystal seedless. Local nurseries are selling 5 gal trees for $90-$120 if you can even find them. 

Also the most prolific seedlessvbearer. Bears fruit in clusters. Must thin to get bigger fruits. Most of the crunchy seedless guavas are shy bearers.

$5 ea. minimum 4 scions. Shipping is $3.5 for first class or $7.5 for priority mail. Paypal is shenxue@gmail.com. Please send as friend or family.

If you like big, crunchy and sweet guavas, this is it. Crystal is the best guava, this variety fruits all season long. It is so good that i had to top worked all of my guava trees to this variety. Get yours before it is too late.

Thanks for the scions xue :)

If you like big crispy you need guava Pen....and if you like more sweet and crispy you need from taiwan. I buy 2 times crystal guava in Singapore and has no taste, nothing.

Thanks Socal0b

No international shipping for now.sorry.

Guavas and other trees have much higher success rate when grafted onto young tender shoots.

Pick up in Rosemead during the day.

Still have some left, Xue? I'd need 8 scions as guava is super hard to graft. Let me know and I'll send the Paypal.

No idea what you’re talking about. Everyone who tried my fruit loved it. I was even able to convince mom guava eaters to plant one after trying it. Both fruit and trees are high demand.

Sorry Simon. I've been top working trees that are in ground only. I stopped grafting onto stand alone trees after Mimosa stopped selling seedings for $5 bucks.

Hi Patrick. I like them slightly under ripe with a slight shade of light green. When fruit starts to develop a shade of white/yellow, it loses a lot of that crispy texture but the fruit develops that tropical guava flavor and it becomes much sweeter.

My asian guavas are about to turn yellow. Yet it is still super crunchy and sweet with a bit of acid and guava flavor, with juice as well.   oval looking and smooth surface. 

I have three different varieties that are about ready to eat right now.   One of them was started from a seed I bought back from Hanoi.
The other two varieties were started from seeds from my cousin and aunt's tree.   One is elongated oval looks similar to the hanoii, but surface is  crooked.  The other is more rounded like an apple.


This is the first time they are so late to harvest.  best flavors compare to other previous years.  Next year, I will let the fruits hang onto the tree longer to get the sweet,acidic, guava flavors so that it doesn't taste like cardboard.

I will be trimming some crystal seedless guava scions this Sunday. if anyone is interested in scions, send me a PM. Prices on crystal seedless guava scion and shipping remains the same as the original post.

Also have a 25 gal cocktail crystal seedless & mexican cream tree for $300. Price is firm. ALL LOW BALLING INQUIRIES WILL BE IGNORED. Local pick up at 91732.




I also have very limited amounts of longan scions at $8 ea:
Fortune eyes
Large dark eyes (originally collected from the Guangzhou province in China by my contractor)
Sak Ip - in my opinion (along with many others), sak ip is one of the BEST longan cultivar to grow. Nice floral aroma and crisp flesh.
Ikeda - Hawaiian selection

These longans are at $5ea
kohala
Biew khiew
Chompoo


Minimum order is $20.

Fang, you can get anything from me anytime at no charge.

I just grafted a ton of longans and lychee. I got some pushing now. It's still warm during the day.
