Guava and Pink Guava

Guava and Pink Guava

The Guava is a tropical fruit that is believed to have originated in Central America and Mexico. It is known for its round or oval shape, green or yellow skin and white, pink or red flesh. The fruit can vary in size, and the flavour can range from sweet to tart.

Guava's seasonality varies depending on where it is grown, but it is typically available from late spring to early autumn. To know when the fruit is ripe, you can check the colour of the skin, a ripe guava should be slightly soft to the touch and have a slightly yellow or yellow-green colour. To store the fruit, it should be kept at room temperature until it is fully ripe, then can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.

The Guava can be eaten fresh, used in cooking to add flavour to sauces, jams, and jellies, or blended into drinks like juices, smoothies, and cocktails. The unique flavour and aroma of guavas make them a popular ingredient in many traditional cuisines of the Caribbean, South America, and Southeast Asia.

Guava is a good source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and antioxidants. It also contains potassium, magnesium, and dietary fiber.

Additionally, guava contains high levels of antioxidants, which may help to prevent cancer and other chronic diseases.
