We need to prune and trim the guava tree regularly to encourage the growth of large, high-quality guava at the edges of the trees.
Normally guava trees has to be trimmed between November and December during winter season and between March and April during spring season.
While pruning the guava tree we should select a single trunk, and 3 to 4 lateral branches and remove all other shoots
Also Prune out crossing and inward-heading branches.
While pruning the guava tree, make sure you cut the lateral branches in an angle so that so water doesn’t stand on it and cause damage to the branches.
After completing pruning for guava tree, make sure you fertilize the guave tree with organic cattle compost and we can expect guava harvest in the next five months
Prune your guava tree every six months to maintain its symmetry and remove excessive growth.
Also remove Diseased branches and suckers can be removed at any time of year.
