Great variety of tropical guava with really sweet flesh. My trees finished ripening all their fruit 2 weeks ago in the high tunnel and that was after they made it through 12F last year under frost blankets with no damage. I sourced mine from Agristarts and we still have 1 gallon plants available if anyone is looking for this cultivar.

Just bought two of these Barbie Guava from Trustyfarms. Helpful folks.

I’m planning two horizontal cordon espaliers with mine.

Because they are small and it’s headed into fall, I will not plant them out until about late March early April. Hopefully the following winter they can tough it out or make it with some minimal protection.

My two Barbie Pink Guava arrived
from Trusty Farms. Good shape. Some bark rubbed off at the base of one of the trees. Should be fine though.
