I'm growing my pink guava in zone 9b without problem -- it seems to flourish here in the desert, so I'm surprised to the see zone information listed here as 10+.

I bought my guava last year and it has doubled in size during this time. The first year it blossomed and fruited one mature fruit with two immature fruits. This year it is totally covered in blossoms and I predict only good things.

The tree seemed totally unaffected by winter temperatures when the temperatures drop dramatically at night.

This tree is is lush and green, keeps its leaves all year, and continues to grow like mad. I have nothing but positive things to say about this tree.
