WTB Red Malaysian guava
« on: December 30, 2016, 08:48:51 AM »
I'm looking to buy a red Malaysian guava plant. If anyone has one they no longer want, please PM me. Or, if someone has a source for mail order. Thanks!

Thanks! Unfortunately, my local Lowe's and Home Depot don't carry such tropicals or subtropical plants. I was very surprised when the HD had some longan and mango trees earlier this year. It's a first.

The Caribbean Dream label is La Verne Nusery (La Verne also sells under other labels as well, depending on subtropical or deciduous or citrus). They sell to HD and Lowes in CA, AZ, and NV. But not TX, unfortunately for musebox.

Clifton's Nursery had them for sale online but out of stock now. I found mine on eBay last spring (cheaper too).

Thanks everyone. I guess I'll keep looking for one on eBay or Clifton's. Seems when you want something, you can't find it. But, when you don't, they're available everywhere. Ha! Or, maybe it's just my bad luck!

Thanks Galka! It's much appreciated. I'm growing some variegated guava seedlings right now. If they continue to grow, I'll send you one as a thank you! They've just germinated but are coming along nicely.

Thanks, musebox! Mine are not gonna make it.  :( So, if yours survive and you have extra, I would be happy to get one from you. About the red Malaysian... Logees nursery has one but they call it Psidium guajava purpurea. I wonder if it's the same guava. The steam and leaves are purple and the flowers are pink but I don't know about the fruit. Also, it is quite expensive for a little 4" plant.  :o

Some of the variegated seedlings have stalled but still have a few that seem to be doing well, just slow. I've been looking after a sick friend, so I admit I neglected them for a bit. Hopefully they will continue to grow without the extra TLC.
