Guavas in Kenya are steadily gaining popularity with major consumption still at household level.However,growing the grafted guava tree seedlings  takes only two years compared to four years with ungrafted ones.With a mature guava tree yielding between 200 to 300 fruits in a season,a farmer with 20 trees  could earn up to Sh20,000, as a medium-sized piece goes for Sh10.This makes it possible for one to fully venture in guava farming as a  side source of income.
