Unique variegated guava with the sweetest fruit we ever tasted. Fruit is medium size, pear-shaped, variegated (white/green striped) outside when unripe, turning bright yellow when ripe. The flesh is pink, very aromatic, sweet and delicious, and contains only a few seeds that separate from pulp easily. This variety is resistant to insects and worms. The fruit is excellent and highly aromatic. Bushy shape, very full tree with large, broad, variegated leaves. Surprisingly for a variegated form, it is very healthy, strong, vigorous and fasts growing. The plant flowers and fruits in small size, perfect for containers. If planted in the ground, the tree grows small to medium size (10-15 ft) with has nice, symmetrical bushy shape. Everbearing, very reliable producer, the plant constantly has fruit, buds or flowers.
