bee pollinateing flowerAs the name angiosperm suggests, Psidium guajava makes covered seeds, better known as "fruit". The guava plant, whether tree or bush, starts producing fruit two to four years after fertilization. When the fruit gets eaten by animals, the seeds pass though the digestive tract and get distributed in a new area. One tree can produce up to 2000 fruits in one year if the conditions are right.

If necessary, new plants can grow from stumps and buds along the roots.

 Psidium guajava makes hermaphroditic white flowers. These flowers then get pollen spread by honeybees and other pollinators.
