Native to central and southern America, the Guava is cultivated for its edible fruit throughout many subtropical and tropical parts of the world. The Guava is an evergreen, shallow rooted shrub or small tree with spreading branches, producing fragrant white flowers and round shaped fruit. Depending upon variety the outer skin may be rough and bitter, or soft and sweet. The inner pulp also varies from an off white to a deep pink and may too be either sweet or sour.
