Caring for Psidium guajava

  • The tree should be planted in well-drained soil where its roots have room to spread.
  • Fertilize growing guavas every one to two months while young and then three to four times per year as the tree matures.
  • Guava trees need a high amount of nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash, along with some magnesium for maximum fruit production.
  • An example is a formula of 6-6-6-2, worked into soils just prior to the onset of the growing season and then evenly spaced out three times during the growth period.
  • Pruning should be done when it grows excess.
  • Look for pest attack and apply cure accordingly.
