    Strawberry guava

    Nice small seedlings. I transplanted them into deeper pots and have them in a greenhouse, where they are getting everyday care. They are doing great.

    Arrived fast in perfect condition!! So thankful!

    When I first purchased a Loquat and 2 Mulberry plants that arrived in perfect condition I of course had to request to be notified when this strawberry guava is available. I couldn't be happier when I got the notification and immediately purchased 2 of these. WOW! It arrived so fast - forget getting anything from Amazon in PR in weeks, let alone DAYS as the case was here! Our babies are doing great and I can't be happier. Sow Exotic is my GO-TO for special plants and trees. THANK YOU FOR SHIPPING TO PUERTO RICO!!!
