Sincere, heart-felt praise!
“I ordered a Midknight Valencia dwarf citrus tree for my sister for Valentine's Day. The tree arrived in a timely manner, and was wrapped with such care, I knew the tree inside would be perfect. It's been two months now and following the instructions you provided has rewarded us with magnificent foliage, and we are seeing a lot of buds! Thank you for growing such lovely citrus trees. Your quality is outstanding, and being 3rd generation hard-core gardeners, we're a picky bunch so I don't swoon this easily over just any 'ol nursery. You have my business indefinitely.'"
Guavas are tropical plants that produce sweet fruit that is high in vitamin C. Guava fruit is often made into jelly or preserves but can also be eaten fresh. Guavas can do well in a wide range of soils, but need protection for heavy frosts in northern and central California.
In colder locations, prune as a shrub, rather than tree shape and mulch heavily to protect the stems from freezing.
Guavas can sometimes be bothered by typical fruit tree pests including mealybug, scale, or whitefly. Control of these pests can be achieved with a few applications of horticultural oil or insecticidal soap and regular pruning that keeps the guava plants open with good air flow. It may also be necessary to control ants that are crawling on the guavas. Boric Acid Ant Baits can be effective control.
