how old are the trees?
they may need to be fertilized.

And Zulfiqar - did all of your trees come from the same nursery or propagated from the same plant?! Say scions or buds taken from one mother tree only.

If you can get a few other guava varieties in there for cross pollination it will improve the quality of the fruits.

Give it a year or two more - bigger trees will give you bigger fruits. Also, if you look up Taiwanese websites, Pearl Guava is usually 200gm -400gm. Your guava fruits are within the low end of that range but for two year old trees could be pretty decent size already.

If you're going to be looking up Pearl Guava info and you get Taiwanese websites and Google translate is confusing - PM me the link and I'll do a quick read thru of that chink language for you and I'll let you know what it says. My Mandarin is getting rusty and I could use the practice.
