enterolobii and knowledge of the phenological characteristics of cattley guava trees is necessary.
Although this species of cattley guava produces flower buds in young buddings, there are no reports of response to fructification pruning or phenological synchronism with the guava tree.
In this sense cattley guava and guava flowering synchronization may, as hypothesis, be reached through fructification pruning in order to facilitate the accomplishment of artificial hybridizations.
The objective of this paper was to evaluate phenological characteristics of cattley guava (P.
Used cattley guava trees genotypes were from three different places: sandbank (AR), farmer's selection (AS) and urban tree (AU).
In the first experiment, seedlings of three accessions of cattley guava (115, 116 and 117) were selected to be evaluated as rootstocks considering as resistant to M.
At 196 days after transplanting, guava differed from cattley guava plants, with a greater mean height.
In accession 116 of cattley guava plants, scions initially sprouted and emitted leaves.
'Paluma' and the rootstocks of guava reaching 63,3% while grafting success between Paluma and cattley guava plants from accessions 115 and 117, reaching 32 and 29%, respectively.
Using thermocouples and a computerized data logger we measured a range of temperatures in the 4 major hosts of Anastrepha suspensa (Loew), the Caribbean fruit fly: (Surinam cherry, Eugenia uniflora L., Cattley guava, Psidium cattleianum Sabine, guava, Psidium guajava L., and loquat, Eriobotrya japonica (Thunb.)), and in grapefruit, Citrus paradisi Macf., an economically important secondary host.
(typically late spring-early summer), Cattley guava, Psidium cattleianum Sabine (typically mid-late summer), guava, Psidium guajava L.
