How to fertilize my guava (P. cattleyanum)?

Guava    None Given

Hello everyone!
I'm from center Italy and I have a plant of guava (P. cattleyanum) also called yellow strawberry guava.
It is in a pot of about 13x15 inches.
Now it has about 70 little fruits and I don't really know if it will be able to get them all mature!
Should I cut some?
Anyway the real question is: how can I fertilize it now?
I know that to have good fruits I have to give a lot of potassium fertilizer.
But what kind of balanced fertilizer and how much?
Thank you!

I enjoy using lots of compost, as well as Dr. Earth all purpose fertilizer, and liquid seaweed myself.
Just read instructions on the packaging.
If you're looking for potassium..cut up banana peels and put them in the soil.
But i say use Compost if you're afraid. Compost is wonderful for everything! and not harsh like some ferts.
let the fruits grow and watch how they mature..keep the soil watered well during fruiting...for nice juicy fruit.
Good fruits dont technically need a lot of potassium..just make sure the soil doesnt dry out too much.
You can cut some to experiment. put them in a darker cool area in your home see if they mature.
But watch and learn from your plants:)
Good luck and have some fun:)!

hello, am Winnie from Kenya, I believe the best fertilizer to use in pomology( fruits production) is organic fertilizer, that is either green manure, farmyard manure or compost manure that have well decomposed.
