Taiwan pink Guava plant pruning care Urban plantsFirst pruning: cutting off the top of the guava tree when it gets 60 to 80cm in height for easy harvest and stimulating branch development.
Second pruning: after branches reach 30 to 40cm in height, cut off their tops to stimulate second branching of Guava plants.
Third pruning: cutting off small and thin branches, branches increasing over leaf canopy and branches infected with insects, pests and diseases every year after harvesting fruit.
To check the overcrowding and to control the Dwarf guava plant height, the terminal shoots on the periphery must be headed back at about 42 cm level in alternate years. Pruning takes place during harvesting period as the Taiwan guava fruit is plucked along with the shoot on which it is bome. Pruning generally should be carried out after harvesting or in spring. Summer pruning is not recommended as It can damage the guava tree plant by sun burning.
