Buying Tips

The best guavas have a pleasant, rich scent. In addition to noting their scent, choose guavas that give to gentle palm pressure but that have not yet begun to show spots.


There are many varieties of guavas. These can vary in size from that of a small egg on up to a medium apple. Some guavas are filled with inedible seeds, while others are seedless.
