The entire fruit of a Cattley Yellow Guava Tree can be eaten due to the thin skin and juicy interior. The fruit is often used in recipes for jelly, jam, butter, paste and sherbet.
Performs best in full sun.
The Cattley guava does well in limestone and poor soils that would barely support other fruit trees. It is shallow-rooted but the red type is fairly drought tolerant. The yellow is able to endure flooding for short periods.
Can be grown inside/potted
