The Tropic Pink Guava (Psidium guajava 'Tropic Pink') is sure to make your mouth water. There's no doubt that this variety produces some of the most dramatic Guava fruit, the lime-green skin and pink flesh. Go ahead and quench your thirst for some tasty Guava with a Tropic Pink Guava tree.

Like all Guava, Tropic Pink appeals to the senses. It has vibrant skin and flesh, smells floral, tastes sweet, and offers a soft and silky texture with a hint of crunch from its seeds. This rare find produces petite fruits that transform from green to bright yellow as they mature to full ripeness. Its fruit can be more round to ovular and its skin varies from smooth to bumpy.

If you've never tasted Guava, you're missing out. Guava tastes amazing when chilled and sliced, but many people make their extras into preserves since they're so high in pectin.

Planting and Application:

You won't be disappointed with how lovely this tree looks. Its ovate leaves are medium green and feature evenly spaced veins. From a distance, the Tropic Pink Guava can be mistaken for a lemon tree!

Because of its delightful shape, size, and attractive appearance, you will want to plant your Tropic Pink in a prominent area of your yard. It makes a wonderful specimen tree that will elicit compliments from the neighbors when it blooms with fuzzy white fragrant flowers in summer or shines with bright yellow fruit in winter.

  • Bright yellowish-green fruit with super sweet pink flesh
  • White flowers with festive stamen
  • Attractive and ornamental foliage
  • Small edible seeds and thin edible peels
  • Flavor compared to pears and strawberry

#ProPlantTips for Care:

If you want to keep your Tropic Pink Guava a secret, plant it as a background hedge. Its leathery leaves do a spectacular job of helping you maintain your privacy.

Tropic Pink grows best in full sun with medium moisture soil. It's not picky when it comes to soil type, though.

  • Growing 15-30’ tall, keep small with pruning which can make harvesting the fruit easier
  • Produces best in well-drained rich soils high in organic matter and regular water
  • While this variety is self-pollinating, you’ll increase your fruit with a partner Guava nearby
  • Hardy growing zones 9-11
  • Guava trees bear fruit as early as 2-3 years old

Don't miss out on this tropical charmer! The evergreen Tropic Pink Guava is a must-have for Guava enthusiasts and subtropical gardeners. Order today at NatureHills.com!
