Guava - Guayabo
|search engine by freefind|
The common guava has the scientific name Psidium guajava and is part of the myrtle and eucalyptus family. The tree is small, with copper-colored bark. It has leaves with many veins, and white or cream-colored flowers. The fruit of the common guava varies in size and shape, but it is usually 4 - 8 centimeters (1? - 3 inches) long.
As the guava ripens, the outside skin changes color from green to light green or yellow. The flesh of the fruit may be white, yellow, pink or red. Inside the fruit are many stone-like seeds.
Another kind of guava is the Cattley guava, also called strawberry or cherry guava. It is quite different from the common guava and has the scientific name Psidium cattleianum. The leaves of the Cattley guava are smaller, shinier, and darker green than those of the common guava. The fruit is also small, rarely growing to more than 4 centimeters (1? inches) long. It is usually red or reddish purple. Inside are several large, nut-like seeds. Both kinds of guava trees usually bear their fruit during the hot, rainy season.
