The Lemon Guava is a form of Strawberry guava with bigger yellow fruit. It is a close relative of the tropical guava (Psidium guajava); it is more suited to the subtropics than is the tropical guava. The lemon guava can be grown wherever citrus succeeds. It is a bushy plant 10 to 20 feet high (rarely more than 10 feet in Phoenix), with smooth, glossy-green, strawberries. The fruit can be eaten raw or made into jam or jelly.
