Red Guava

Red guava is a small fruit with a strong yet refreshing fragrance that hints of rose petals. Only 1.5 - 2.5 inches in diameter, the entire fruit - yellowish green peel, pink flesh,and numerous seeds - is edible.

The red colored meat is the sweetest. The outer layer and peel are sour. The peel is rich in phytochemicals.

Guava is often served as a dessert. The fruit is also extensively used to make candies, preserves, jellies, jams, marmalades, juices and aguas frescas.

Guavas are a good source of vitamin A and C along with dietary fiber.
