About Us

The Wild Guava

 

After spending years in the restaurant industry, Sean and Jess O'Toole took their passion for growing food and turned it into 'The Wild Guava'

We believe that plants should feed you, water should be put on food and not lawns, and with out farmers, there would be no food. 

Our nursery is composed of varieties we have hand chosen because they'll perform beautifully for our customers in the Tampa Bay area. Our goal is to help people grow their own food. In Florida we have the opportunity to grow so many interesting and beneficial crops. We offer growing support to our customers and always suggest they use the most natural gardening practices available. 

 

We also believe in Local Food. We have farms in Plant City and Bokeelia FL, where we grow multiple varieties of Mango, Lychee, Sapodilla, Ackee, Miracle Fruit, Guava, Tropical Cherries, Goji Berries, Sugar Apples, Persimmon, Sugarcane and so many more. We only use natural growing practices, we hand harvest as close to market as possible and sell the fruit out of our Farmers Market Locations!

 

Our Plant City and Bokeelia locations are working farms and are not open to the public. We only retail out of our Farmers Market locations. This helps us keep our costs lower, and pass on the savings to our customers. Our plants and fruit are priced at a fair market value, and are often less expensive than the big box stores! 

Sean and Jess are the only employees of The Wild Guava. They own and operate every peice of the business from tending the farms, harvesting the fruit, planting and propogating nursery stock; to retailing out of our own farmers market booths in 4 different locations. It's important to us to control the quality of our fruit and trees for the satisfaction of our customers. We couldn't do it with out you!
