Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

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


Psidium littorale (P. cattleianum lucidum) 'Yellow Lemon'

Lemon guava fruits are small, round and yellow with very thin skin and fragrant yellow flesh. The lemon guava flavor is well balanced; sweet and tropical with a touch of tang. Lemon guava fruit is very fragile and difficult to transport successfully, so it is rarely found in grocery stores. Good for eating fresh, juiced or in jelly.

Planting & Care

The lemon guava is very adaptable and can be grown outdoors throughout much of Florida and California. It will fruit in a container almost anywhere if protected from hard freezes. The lemon 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. Lots of water is needed during fruit development and for proper ripening to occur.
