guavaberry fruit 1 Propagation of Guavaberry fruit

Propagation of guavaberry involves two methods: sexual (seeds) and asexual (cuttings).

Sexual Propagation
Sexual propagation of guavaberry is the most common and reliable method for growing new plants. The seeds are collected from ripe fruits, cleaned, and planted in rich, well-drained soil. The seeds should be planted about one foot apart and should be kept moist until germination occurs, which can take up to two weeks. Once the seedlings have grown to a few inches tall, they can be transplanted to their permanent location.

Asexual Propagation

Asexual propagation is a less common method, but it is a useful one for those interested in growing multiple plants from a single parent.
