Psidium 'Tropical Pink' Guava is an evergreen shrub or small tree that is valued not only for fruit production but also for ornamental purposes and fits beautifully into an edible landscape. 'Tropical Pink' puts on a spectacular summer show of fuzzy white flowers set against glossy green foliage. Borne singly or in small clusters, the fragrant flowers appeal to bees and butterflies. The fruits that follow ripen in winter. Attractive and aromatic, they have a greenish yellow rind and juicy, salmon-pink flesh with a sweet, fruity flavor that tastes like a combination of passion fruit, strawberry, and pear.
'Tropical Pink' Guava makes an excellent specimen and will create a great living wall with its dense foliage, which provides a lot of privacy. It can also be trained as an espalier or grown as a container plant. In the garden, 'Tropical Pink' reaches 15 to 20 feet tall at full maturity but can be pruned to maintain almost any desired size and shape. In a container, the tree will be much smaller but will still flower and set full-sized fruits.
'Tropical Pink' grows best in a sunny location with organically rich, well-draining soil. The tree is self-fertile and will bear fruit without any pollen from other varieties.
