Description: The Guava Tree, scientifically known as Psidium guajava, is a tropical evergreen tree prized for its delicious fruits and attractive foliage. Belonging to the Myrtaceae family, this tree is native to tropical regions of Central and South America but is now cultivated worldwide in subtropical and tropical climates. The Guava Tree is valued not only for its sweet and aromatic fruits but also for its ornamental appeal, making it a popular choice for home gardens and orchards.

🌿 Botanical Name: Psidium guajava (Guava Tree)

💧 Care Level: Easy. Guava Trees are relatively low-maintenance and can adapt well to a variety of growing conditions.

📏 Size: Guava Trees can vary in size depending on the cultivar and growing conditions. They typically range from 10 to 20 feet (3 to 6 meters) in height with a similar spread.

☀️ Light: Plant Guava Trees in full sun to partial shade. They prefer at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal growth and fruit production.

💧 Water: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged, especially during the growing season. Water Guava Trees regularly, allowing the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil to dry out slightly between waterings.

🌱 Soil: Plant Guava Trees in well-draining, fertile soil with a pH level between 5.0 and 7.0. They prefer soil rich in organic matter and good drainage to prevent waterlogging.

🌱 Fertilizing: Feed Guava Trees with a balanced fertilizer formulated for fruit trees during the growing season (spring and summer). Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates and frequency.

🔄 Pruning: Prune Guava Trees as needed to remove dead, diseased, or damaged branches and to maintain a desirable shape. Pruning can also help improve air circulation and sunlight penetration within the canopy.

🍃 Pests and Diseases: Monitor Guava Trees for common pests such as fruit flies, scale insects, and aphids. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Watch for signs of fungal diseases such as anthracnose and powdery mildew, and ensure proper air circulation and sanitation practices to prevent problems.

Propagation: Guava Trees can be propagated from seeds, cuttings, or air layering. Seeds should be collected from ripe fruits and planted immediately in well-draining soil. Cuttings can be taken from healthy, mature branches and rooted in a suitable rooting medium. Air layering involves creating a wound on a branch, applying rooting hormone, and wrapping the wounded area with moist sphagnum moss until roots develop.
