Although Gavino Gutierrez couldn't find guavas growing in Tampa, do some people grow them down there? How about mangoes and citrus?

Not sure the point of this question. Do peaches grow in Georgia? Has anyone ever found oil in Texas? Also, when is the warmest time of year to visit Antarctica?

I've got a nice grape arbor in my yard;

Muscadine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I really don't know what to do with them, so I pretty much just leave them to the birds.

You could eat them. They're good for you and taste good too. I had them at a house I owned back in NC.

Some citrus needs warmer winters than what is found in the Florida panhandle. I think most of Florida's citrus orchards are southeast of Tampa.

There is a small community to the east of Tampa by I75 named Mango. There are groves all around Tampa Bay.

As far as guavas... I don't know. But I know Mr. Empanada sells guava & cheese empanadas.

Any extremely cold nights require the groves to be protected by the growers either by sprinklers or heaters. Many people have citrus trees in their yards.
