Guava is a round tropical fruit, native to Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean but today, also gets cultivated outside of these regions. Known by the species name Psidium guajava, the fruit flesh of a guava can be either pink or whitish. Traditionally South and Central America grow pink guava, whilst Asia grow white guava. The outside of the fruit becomes green or yellow in colour when ripe, and has a diameter of approximately 2.5 cm. The guava tree reaches its full height after approximately 10 years, however, begins to bear fruit after 3 to 4 years.
