Guava Tree: Nutritious Tropical Fruit At Home

If you dream of having a tropical fruit tree, like a guava, at home, you need to know that they are extremely easy to grow.

First, let’s talk about the benefits of growing your own guava tree. Guavas are not only delicious but also an excellent source of vitamin C.

Research shows that Vitamin C is an effective treatment for the symptoms of a common cold and other flu-like illnesses. Furthermore, guavas contain high amounts of soluble fiber.

Fiber is what helps you feel full and satisfied, so guavas will help you maintain a healthy weight when consumed as part of a balanced diet.

There are two ways to grow a guava tree: from seeds or from cuttings.

If you want to start from seeds, you basically need to place them in a damp, dark place and be ready to wait. Be aware that seeds can take up to two years to germinate. If you want a quicker option, guava cuttings will suffice.

If you live in a warm climate, you can plant them outside. But if winters in your area can be harsh, plant guava trees in large pots that you can leave indoors, and then transfer them to the ground when summer comes.

To be on the safe side, check with local nurseries to see when the ground is warm enough to plant .
