Q.Why there is Premature falling of Guava fruit from the plant.

Zone Guwahati, 781007, Assam, North East India | Anis BARBHUIYAN added on June 15, 2019 | Answered

I have a decently healthy guava plant 1/½ yes old almost 20 ft high. Leaves, branches seems to look healthy once it started growing after initial months of stunted growth. However right from the begining almost 90% of the guava fruits seems to fall of prematurely. Please advice and suggest what step I need to take.
It’s a Thai variety Guava plant purplish in colour planted in North East region of India – Assam, Guwahati.which is a conducive climate for such a plant considered Tropical region.
Look forward to your response for corrective measures if it needs to be undertaken. Haven’t used any other fertilisers besides Vermicompost though not that very frequently.

Without photos it would be hard to say. If that is the only thing that the tree has been fed with, then I would suggest that the tree may be lacking in nutrients. There are many fruit tree fertilizers on the market, and most will work just fine.

Please include some photos, and I will be able to help you a little better. In the meantime, this article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/guava/guava-tree-wont-fruit.htm
