This variety of guava 'Barbie pink' is truly unique in the guava world as its name is definitely well suited to the color of inside of the fruit which is a bright pink when ripe while the bumpy skin is a yellowish green color. The fruits are crisp and sweet with a hint of tart. The 'Barbie pink' guavas are a nice compact growing guava with smaller size fruit than your standard guavas and can produce almost year round once established. Guavas are considered tropical trees so if you live in areas with frost warnings and/or snow then growing these beauties in a pot is ideal especially since they are fantastic potted plants. The guava trunks are similar to a crepe myrtle tree with the reddish bark peeling from time to time as the width of the trunk grows. The 'Barbie pink' guava grows to be about 15 ft high x about 8-10 ft wide here in South Florida. A perfect 'hard to get' hybrid for the most avid of collectors!
