Barbie Pink Guava Trees were first grown in Florida and their giant pink-fleshed fruits have become favorites among home growers. Barbie Pink Guavas are fragrant, can weigh as much as one pound each, and their flesh is juicy, crisp, and sweet with a slight tartness. The copper-colored bark on the trunks and limbs peels away in curling patches and reveals spots of pink and green below. This creates a colorful display beneath the dark green foliage.
Barbie Pink Guava Trees can be grown outdoors in USDA Zones 9 to 11. The fast growing trees can grow fruit in one year, and they will also produce fruit when grown in a pot. Barbie Pink Guava Trees do best in full sun and prefer soil that drains well. The trees reach heights of 15 feet, and widths of 10 to 12 feet. Barbie Pink Guava blooms are white and lightly fragrant. The fruit is yellow-green when mature, has bright pink flesh, and is great quality for eating fresh, making preserves, or juicing.
