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. The petite fruit, range in size from 4-8cm, and have a delicious blend of lemony guava flavor and aroma.  Lemon Guavas are mainly eaten raw but can also be cooked. The pulp is often used in fruit salads, smoothies, or in a marinade.  Lemon guavas, like most guava varieties, contain a high amount of vitamin A and folate. It also contains vitamins C (even greater amounts are in the skin) and B-complex vitamins as well as minerals like potassium.

Lemon Guava trees are excellent producers, fast-growing, and are an excellent design element for an edible landscape.  Well-suited for growing in a container and grows successfully as a potted plant in northern zones.  Somewhat drought tolerant!
