Thailand White Guava Trees are small trees so you can fit them into almost any garden or yard. Mature Thailand White Guava Trees will grow to about 10 to 12 feet tall and 10 feet wide. Space new trees 15 feet apart, or 15 feet away from structures and taller guava trees. Plant in full sun if possible, or in a spot that gets at least 3 or 4 hours of direct sunlight needed per day. Water newly planted trees in well, and mulch the ground around the guava tree base. Thailand Guava Trees can take short periods of dry soil much better than periods of flooding. Make sure to plant in a well-drained location not prone to long-term saturation.

Make sure to collect any fallen fruit and compost or discard it to discourage pests and fungi from thriving near the growing trees.
