Growing Guava Trees In Your Yard
Guava trees are not a common sight in North America and need a decidedly tropical habitat. In the United States, they are found in Hawaii, the Virgin Islands, Florida and a few sheltered areas in California and Texas. The trees are very frost tender and will succumb to a freeze when young, although adult trees may survive short periods of cold. Ideally, guava trees require warm climate to grow. They are normally found in countries with hot summers and cool winters. Vegetation and fruits grow in abundance if the temperature is in between 15 °C and 28 °C. The flowers come out in 3 to 6 months and bear fruits. During this fruit bearing stage, if the temperature falls below 15 °C, the quality of the fruit suffers. The tree is well adapted to both summer and winter temperatures. They can also survive in droughts very well and grow best in areas which receive almost 1000 to 1500 mm of rainfall. If the rain is sparse, trees should be watered during the dry period, especially if there are fruits. Basically all types of soil suit the growth of a guava tree. These trees are normally found near streams, brooks, and rivers. They survive in these areas despite the excessive water logging and poor soil conditions. If you want a well-grown guava tree, you should plant it in well-drained soils.
Before planting a new guava plant, examine the soil carefully with respect to its depth, drainage, and compacted layers. The ideal depth of the soil to plant a guava tree should be 800 mm. The recommended planting distance is 2 m between each tree in a row. If you want your guava tree to always remain healthy and productive, make sure the plants are not planted too close to each other. If you are planting these trees on a large-scale, make sure that the space between them must be enough to pass tractors, spraying machines, and laborers.
