There are over 100 cultivars of Guava, a round or oblong or pear shaped tropical fruit with a green rind. Inside, the flesh is white or deep pink, depending on the cultivar, with small seeds. Containing more vitamin C than oranges, the guava has a taste similar to an Asian pear mixed with a crab apple. Firm, crisp, and mildly sweet, the skin is also edible, but is sometimes bitter. Enjoy guavas in desserts, sauces, jellies, jams, and juices or simply out of hand.
