Will have to wait until next season. Angel Red finished up 2 weeks ago, what few were left got snatched by critters.

Yes... Dang critters. I've been watching some seedless guava fruits growing to the size of small oranges. It's a young tree so there were only three. They are (were) still green and hard. Yesterday I woke to see a spread of small pieces sprinkled on top of a retaining wall. I'm hoping the squirrel has a bellyache from them!

Panax,

They even snatch the oranges, must bite through them and spit out the rind. I try to use bird netting and smearing the fruit with hot pepper pulp/oil, to deter pests.

Thank you for the suggestions. Next year I'll try to get my act together and spritz some pepper oil on them.

Hello Everyone,

I currently live in Milpitas, California and found this forum after searching for a few guava varieties found some older but interesting information here.

My current interests are mangos, regular and pineapple guava, figs and blueberries. I'd also like to learn how to graft and plan on attempting my first graft this spring from a Mallika mango over to a fast growing Manila mango tree.

Cheers,
Aman

You need to meet Gregory here if you like Guavas, he has tons of them. For grafting, this Saturday is the Santa Clara CRFG scion exchange. Its at Prusch Park in San Jose (11AM?). There should be grafting demos there, also there will be many fig scions available for rooting. If you have any mango varieties I'd be interested in getting some scions this year to graft onto my Manila seedling.
