- Guava can be grown in USDA zones 9 to 12. In zones 9a and 8b, guava should be protected from frost or chilly weather. Guava will be damaged by frost; it may recover from exposure to temperatures as low as 29°F but will likely lose all of its leaves.
- Plant guava in full sun; in dessert regions plant guava in partial shade or protect plants from the midday sun.

- Guavas will grow where the soil pH ranges from 4.5 to 9.4; a neutral pH is of 6.0 to 7.0 is optimal.

- Choose a guava variety that will fit your garden; dwarf guavas grow to 3 feet tall; standard cultivars grow to 12 feet tall or taller. Some varieties can grow to nearly 30 feet tall in tropical climates.
- Guavas are mostly self-fruitful. Some cultivars may produce more fruit when cross-pollinated with another variety.
- Guavas bloom throughout the year, but the time of the heaviest bloom is with the onset of warm weather in spring.
