    Guavas for Dessert~

    Fri Sep 30, 2011 4:06 pm Groupie

    The tropical guava tree is a large evergreen that features peeling bark, sweetly fragrant flowers and delicious fruit. The egg-shaped fruit develops a musky aroma as it ripens. In addition to being eaten fresh it is used to make jams, juices & desserts.

    Guava has an incredibly high content of vitamin C. One guava fruit contains four times more vitamin C than an average-sized orange; and ten times more vitamin A than a lemon!

    Guava is an excellent source of fiber, almost 70 times more fiber than can be found in an orange! Other key nutrients are vitamins B2 and E, calcium, copper, folate, iron, manganese, phosphorus and potassium.

    Here are a couple from me

    I am so glad I learned about strawberry guava BEFORE I planted it in my yard. I now know good sources to pick it. However it is such a messy tree I don't want it in my yard....AND.....they take so much effort.

    I am planning on putting a couple guava trees in my yard. I just got an Asian Lemon Guava which is crunchy. Next I would like to get a pineapple guava or a Ruby or Supreme Red Indian Guava tree.
