My strawberry guava tree has been in the ground for around 9 months and has already produced flowers. Is this a weird time for it to be flowering? It's autumn here.
About a month ago we had some renovations done and some of the leaves became dusted by some powder from a skip. Could this flowering be a stress response?Since then, though, the tree has put on lots of glossy new growth and still seems happy.
Also, I plan to cover the developing fruit in cloth or paper bags to prevent fruit fly attacks. At what point in the fruit's development should I do this?
Hey Russell, I see a big variation in flowering times in guavas and strawberry guavas here (Brazil) from place to place and depending on weather.... I just checked a local guide and it says "june to december."
(not sure about bagging fruit, hopefully i'll learn something from someone else)
