Hi. I heard that the lemon guava survives Teexas winters. I am in Dallas, Texas (zone 8). Will it fruit in my area/survive?

Because it is of tropical origin, guava grows best in tropical and subtropical areas that are frost-free. While young trees can be killed by temperatures in the middle to upper 20's, older trees can tolerate slightly colder temperatures without much damage. Even if killed to the ground by freezing weather, the tree will usually regrow from underground portions. You can read more detailed descriptions of the best varieties on the following Texas A & M website:
