Scientific name: Psidium guajava
Common name: Guava
Origin: Central America

The yellow-green guavas taste sweet and sour and resemble a strawberry in taste. They contain a lot of vitamin C and can be eaten fresh or processed into juice, jam or liqueur. They measure 5 to 10 cm and grow on a shrub or small tree from Central America. Nowadays, the species is found worldwide in the tropics, as it is planted to harvest the fruits. In tropical conditions, the species can reach 6 meters in height, but as a house or tub plant, it remains a lot smaller. Even in a pot, the plant can bloom with white flowers that have many protruding stamens. After pollination by bees, they are followed by the fruits. 

Provide a sunny spot and water the plant regularly. It is best to choose a soil mixture of 2 parts potting soil and 1 part sand, so that it becomes well permeable. In the summer months the plant can be placed outside, but in the winter it should be overwintered inside.
