Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Red Strawberry Guava is self-fertile, but the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second tree.

Planting & Care

The strawberry guava is tolerant of many soil types, but produces best in well-drained soils with some organic matter. Plant in full sun and provide regular moisture. Strawberry guavas are self-pollinating and produce abundant amounts of fruit. The abundant fruit crop will attract birds and squirels. Strawberry guavas are considered invasive, so avoid planting near a natural habitat like a preserve, where birds can spread the seeds.
