Guavas are a tropical fruit native to Mexico, Central America, and South America. Mature trees of most species are fairly cold-hardy and can survive temperatures slightly colder than 25°F for short periods of time. They are rich in dietary fiber and vitamin C, typically containing four times the amount of vitamin C as an orange.

- Pink (Zones 9-11)
In general, guava should be planted in full sun for best growth and fruit production. These plants are well-adapted to warm subtropical to tropical climatic conditions. Ideal temperatures for growth and production range from 73°-82°F. Temperatures below 60°F or drought cause growth to slow or cease. Guavas do best with regular deep watering. The ground should be allowed to dry to a depth of several inches before watering again.
