I grew this one from a seed. It is about 6 years old.
Bought this one from the local Oakland Nursery, which appears to have obtained it originally from Pine Island Nursery in Florida. It was ready to flower when I bought it in the early summer, and actually bore great tasting Guavas! I took some of the seeds and am currently trying to grow some seedlings.
I am not sure if it came infected (probably not), but I have had an issue with soft scale insects yet again. I have been trying to wipe it down with ethyl alcohol daily to rid myself of the scale. From my past experience I have learned that I will unlikely cure the plant of scale, but I can definitely control it. It’s also most likely all my plants in the basement are already infected with scale as well, which is why I keep my prized plants [Mango #6 and Coffee Plant] upstairs (unfortunately away from the grow light). They do get good natural light.
