Renowned for its beauty this can be grown as an ornamental shrub or tree. The trunk has shedding bark and it produces fragrant flowers. The small fig-like fruit are considered to be the sweetest of all the guava varieties with a musky fragrance and tropical notes of papaya, passion fruit, melon and ripe pear. Considered to be a 'super fruit', the skin is high in Vitamin C and the pink flesh contains more beta carotene than the white variety.
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.
