- Graft 1: South African, source scion from AZRFG Scion Exchange, Jan 2016
I had this guava in a pot for a couple of years. The foliage is beautiful but the guavas are just okay. When it was in a pot, the leaves were much more striking and purple-red. I planted it in the ground but it got overtaken by my Barbados Cherry. It gets much less sun than it wants. But the South African graft has grown into the light and that sends some energy back to the Red Malaysian. Because it doesn't get much light the leaves are hardly red at all anymore.
