First guava
« on: September 16, 2021, 08:57:24 AM »
Bought this guava tree as “ruby x supreme” from the tree sale at south FL fairgrounds earlier this year. Decided to add guava to mix up the diversity and get some fruit outside of mango and lychee season. I didn’t bag the fruit so happy to see no worms, but it seems small compared to the pics I’ve seen of “ruby x supreme” will the fruit eventually get larger? I liked the flavor and was mildl sweet strawberry flavor.

Thanks,

Joe

Size looks normal.

I'm assuming you have a small tree as you purchased it recently. I have a Ruby Supreme in a 25G container, I've had it for about 4-5 years, its about 5' tall now. Initially the guavas were small just like what you posted but as the tree gets bigger it can support more and also make them bigger. Now mine are about 4" in diameter.
