The Strawberry Guava shrub is a FAST grower and bears fruits in only 1-2 years! Once the fruit appears, it ripens within 3-4 months. The shrub can be kept at a bush height with pruning, and containment in a smaller container. Alternatively, it can be planted in the ground with ample space to grow to its full potential as a tree height of 25 ft. tall.
Sow seeds 1/4 of an inch into the soil when temperatures are warm (at least in the '70s). Planting in cooler temperatures will delay germination. Keep seeds and soil moist throughout the germination phase. Under optimal conditions, expect seeds to sprout within 3-4 months' time, sometimes sooner.
