Description

The Crown Guava is a small shrub/bush found across the northern part of the Amazonian basin from Colombia, Guyana and into Venezuela. It is a cousin of the more common guava fruit (Psidium giajava) but has a taste all of its own. It tend sto have a sharper more acid taste so so is rarely eaten as the raw fruit but more often made into jams and delicious fizzy drinks - often being combined with honey or sugar. It is also grown as an ornamental.

Sowing Advice

These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and should be sown into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered thinly with sand or grit and kept moist. Keep at between 20-25 degrees C. Seeds sometimes germinate within 4 to 6 weeks although some may take very much longer so please be patient. Plant out in the open ground in warmer countries or in a large container elsewhere.
