Psidium guajava variegata (Honeymoon Guava) is a large shrub or small tree native to tropical America. It is a fast-growing tree, capable of reaching 5-10 feet tall in full sun and with regular water. The tree is an ornamental specimen with its variegated, broad leaves which have showy white to off-white flowers. Its flowers bloom in clusters and are very attractive. The edible fruit it produces is sweet and delicious with the aroma of ripe fruit when it is fully ripe. The ripe fruit has a unique variegated yellow and green striped exterior and sweet, aromatic, and juicy pink flesh that contains a few seeds.

The Honeymoon Guava is hardy to USDA Zone 8-11 and can withstand temperatures as low as 30s F for a short period of time. The tree can produce up to 50 fruits per season and the fruits can be eaten raw, cooked, canned, and juiced. Psidium guajava variegata is rich in vitamin C, dietary fiber, carotenoids and flavonoids. Eating this fruit can boost immune system, aid digestion, and help keep skin looking healthy.

When grown in cold regions, this guava tree is best grown in a pot. It should be protected from cold winter winds, as well as heat and drought. The potted tree should be placed in a sunny spot, and watered regularly. It is important to prune the plant in spring to promote growth and keep it healthy. The soil needs to be rich and well-draining, and the plant requires fertilizer to ensure good growth and fruit production.
