Cherry Guava Yellow 90mm pots
The Yellow Cherry Guava (Psidium cattleyanum var littoralea) is a yellow skinned variant of the traditional red cherry guava. The delicious golden fruit are sweeter than the red variety and the trees start to bear in the first year.
It is a very attractive small evergreen tree with glossy green leaves, producing an abundance of sweet, juicy fruit in late summer to Autumn. The fruit is round 2.5 – 4 cm in diameter (the size of a lychee).
The flesh is juicy and has the finest flavor of any guava. Cherry guavas are sub-tropical will grow in a wide range of soils and climatic conditions. They prefer full sun or dappled shade and are tolerant of frost.
As a garden plant they can be used as an informal fruiting hedge or a patio plant. Fruit can be eaten straight of the tree or used to make jam and desserts.
The pulp can be juiced to make a delicious juice drink rich in vitamin C and phytonutrients.
The trees are 12-14 months old, 70-90cm tall are sun hardened and ready to plant into the ground or a large pot. Advanced trees are available for pickup from the nursery direct. Please contact us for more details.
