Often listed as a superfruit, guavas are rich in dietary fiber, folic acid, potassium, copper, manganese, and vitamins A and C. A single guava fruit contains roughly four times the amount of vitamin C as an orange!

Selection Process

Smell is the best indicator of a guava’s freshness. Choose fruits with a softly sweet aroma. Some skin discoloration is normal; just avoid fruits that are obviously damaged or rotting. Guavas are ripe and ready to eat when they yield under mild pressure.
