Guava Growth Progression from Pruning to Harvest



From Ian Maguire's
Tropical Fruit Photography Archive



The pictures below were taken around this time last year in TREC's guava collection. I had tagged a number of the pruned branches to track the growth and development. I found the guava to be just as interesting as the other tropical fruit crops that I have spent time shooting. Nature, again, has proven to provide a wealth of analogies when observed closely.
