Guava tree - container grown from seed

September 11, 2005

I have grown a guava tree from seed about 5 yrs ago. It has grown well in a container, is brought in every fall at first frost to the garage where it remains under good lighting all winter. It is then brought out in early spring after last frost. I water it well, fertilize it with an all purpose 10-10-10 fertilizer. It has never bloomed. All I get is really nice foliage. I do prune it back heavily toward the end of summer, about 6-8 weeks before it comes indoors. I don't know what variety of guava this is but it does have dark green leaves and appears healthy. Can anyone tell me why it has never bloomed and whether it ever will?
