The Lemon Guava, also commonly called Cattley Guava, is a small sub-tropical fruit tree.  It abundantly produces sweet lime-green to golden-yellow guava fruit.

    Doing it right

    We have bought several lemon guava trees from Sow Exotic. Each order arrived in excellent condition. Both the plant health and the manner in which the staff secured the plant was great. Traveling from Florida to California isn’t a short trip. Many hands handled those boxes. Yet, hardly even a teaspoon of dirt was out of place by the time the plants arrived. The trees are intended to be house warming gifts. All of the trees are growing well. Sow exotic loves what they do and it shows through in the quality they display and deliver. Great job guys!

    Larger than expected!

    The tree came with a nice little trunk and developed branches. It flowered its second year and set two small fruit. They ripened indoors so they ripened green, but still tasted very good! Can’t wait for more.

    Perfect

    Perfectly packed and very healthy. Green. No leaf drop. Its doing very well in a semi shady spot until it gets a bit bigger. Then I will plant it under the sun. I tried growing one from cuttings but I failed. I don't have the patience to try again. I am very happy with this perfect seedling. I have no regrets buying this.

    Neatly packed

    The plant came neatly packed in the box. I love the way that they pack and ship plants. I will be writing a review at a later time once the plant starts to produce.
