‘Ruby Supreme’ Guava - 7 Gal - 4 to 5 Feet Tall
One of the easiest tropical fruiting plants to grow for the beginning fruit gardener, ‘Ruby Supreme’ has baseball-sized fruits that turn yellow when ripe. The inner flesh is highly aromatic, sweet and pink. It can be eaten fresh or made into jelly or juice. For optimum sweetness, let the fruit fully ripen on the tree when the skin yields slightly to the touch. ‘Ruby Supreme’ flowers and fruits year-round in cycles that last 60-90 days between flowering and ripe fruit. For container grown guavas, we recommend pruning the shrub to create a bushy plant that’s as wide as it is tall. Our plants are cutting grown so they begin fruiting at a young age often by the time the plants are 2’ tall. The more sun and warmth they receive, the more fruit they produce.
