  • Guava (from Spanish Guayaba; Goiaba in Portuguese) is a genus of about 100 species of tropical shrubs and small trees in the myrtle family Myrtaceae, native to the Caribbean, Central America and northern South America.
  • Guavas are cultivated in many tropical countries for their edible fruits. Several species are grown commercially
  • Guava fruits are picked at the mature-green stage (color change from dark- to light-green) in some countries where consumers eat them at that stage.
  • In countries where consumers prefer ripe guava, the fruits are picked at the firm-yellow to half-ripe (softer) stage for long-distance transport or at the fully-ripe (yellow and soft) stage for local markets.
  • Color is a good indicator of ripeness stage; size and shape may be important in some markets; freedom from defects, insects, and decay; firmness and extent of gritty texture due to the presence of stone cells (sclereids).
  • Guavas are a preferred host for fruit flies and must be treated for disinfestation to be accepted in many countries. One of the insect control treatments is heat either as immersion in 46C-water for 35 minutes or exposed to hot air at 48C for 60 minutes. Another potential insect control treatment is irradiation at 0.15-0.30 kGy.
  • The guava may be propagated by grafting or air layering but is commonly grown from seed. The disadvantage of the latter method is that seedlings do not always reproduce the characteristics of the parent. Seedlings bear fruit during the second year.
  • South Africa, India, Hawaii & Malaysia are the major producers and exporters of Guava & Products
