People also ask, how long do guava seeds take to germinate?
If you are growing guava from seed, the plant might not produce fruit true to the parent. To increase the chances of germination (and reduce the time), let the seeds sit in a little water for two weeks, or boil them for five minutes, then plant. Germination will take between 2 and 8 weeks.
One may also ask, can I eat guava seeds? Feel free to simply rinse the guava off and dive in, eating the rind and the seeds. In fact, the rind of a guava has more vitamin C than an entire orange. Sometimes they have tougher seeds that you may find unpleasant—though they are completely edible.
In this regard, how do you germinate guava seeds?
Place guava seeds in a pot of boiling water, and boil for five minutes to break seed dormancy and speed germination. Fill a 4-inch nursery pot with soilless seed-starting mix. Press one guava seed into the center of the pot.
How can I make my guava grow faster?
If you are lucky enough to live in a region where guava plants grow outside, the tree should be planted in well-drained soil where its roots have room to spread. Fertilize growing guavas every one to two months while young and then three to four times per year as the tree matures.
