Psidium guajava - Tropical Guava Fruit


Psidium guajava  - Tropical Guava Fruit (Psidium guajava  - Tropical Guava)

My tropical guava tree is full of fruits. It typically fruits in summer and early fall...however, with the unusual weather last year it bloomed in early fall. Photo taken Jan. 22, 2011.

Palmate:

I don't eat them. I picked all the fruits and gave them to my neighbor...who gave me a bag of lemons and oranges from their trees a couple of days ago.

Tropical guavas are very widely grown here. Many properties have 3 or 4 trees in their yard here.

Yes they do a lot of shared gardening over there too, don't they, last year I use to chat to the people over there on a chat room, and lots of youngster were doing it.

Do you not like the taste of them, but good swop with the Lemons and Oranges

Sixpence:

Yes, it was...I make homemade orange juice and lemon aid or freeze the lemon juice for cooking. We're lucky here in CA. lemon trees are continuously producing fruit. There's always some variety of orange in season all year also.

Yes, we are very lucky! In San Diego County all citrus species/varieties (lemons, limes, grapefruit, blood orange, pomelo, navels oranges, tangelos, kumquats, tangerines) are grown. Also, tropical guava, strawberry guava, avocado (many varieties...we're the capital growing region of the U.S.), cherimoya, mango, sugar cane, Macadamia nuts are just some of the commercially grown crops.

There is a lot of variety there which you are able to grow, I have in my garden Coxs Apples, Cherries for Jam, Plumb, Pear, Strawberries, Goji berry, Rapsberry, Logan Berry, Blueberry, Rhubarb, Gooseberry, just bought Red current, and large fruiting Black current. I do grow a small amount of salad and veg, I have onions, and leeks, and white head broccoli in my raised bed at present.

Sixpence:

Are all those crops commercially grown in your area?

That's quite a bit...don't need to go to the store and purchase produce. :>)

These are in my garden but there is a farm which you can go pick your own that grows all this through out the year locally which I some times go to when mine are out of season. Have you ever heard of the Yorkshire triangle, its places where they force Rhubarb up when out of season in sheds which are huge grown in the dark, and grow Rhubarb all year round.
