Guava ‘Ruby Supreme’ (Psidium guajava) One of the easiest tropical fruiting plants to grow for the beginning fruit gardener, ‘Ruby Supreme’ has baseball-sized fruits that turn yellow when ripe. The inner flesh is highly aromatic, sweet and pink. It can be eaten fresh or made into jelly or juice. For optimum sweetness, let the fruit fully ripen on the tree when the skin yields slightly to the touch.
The summer of 2008, the year after dad died his cherry tree was so heavy with cherries we were all dumbfounded. It was the crop he always dreamed of! I picked 32 lbs. and there was probably 32 more way up high! I think his soul flew through that tree or angels camped there all night awaiting for morning light to take him home! Thus the blessing of the harvest.
