Psidium guajava – Guava Tree

Guava (Psidium guajava) is valued for its delectable taste and aroma. Guava can be considered as the ‘apple of the tropics’ for its high vitamin C and mineral content. It is native to tropical America where it occurs wild. Early Spanish and Portuguese colonizers brought it to New World, the East Indies, and Guam. There are 25 varieties of Guava.
