Have you ever tried this amazing fruit?
Whenever I see guava in the markets, I know it is a good season and it’s time to eat fresh and healthy!
I have such a beautiful memory with guava. When I was a kid, we had the biggest garden in the village. We had tons of mangoes, star fruits, rose apples, pomelon, pomegranates and guava in the garden. I loved the way my garden changed every season and provided us different fresh fruits now and then. Guava trees were something we kids cherished the most. It usually had fruit year round. My dad would wrap the fruits with paper so neatly that looked almost like the trees gave the paper fruits. But when we picked these fruits and opened the wraps, there would be perfect round and smooth beautiful juicy guavas. They was always our after school fruits.
When I was in college, my friend from Iran told me she was so excited about guava and had never tried it before. I felt so funny and blessed at the same time that I was so lucky to have guava trees next to my bedroom window then.
Guava is considered to be superrich in fiber and vitamin c. It also has high value of antioxidant pigments.
The fruits can be eaten raw or ripe. I love when it is half-ripen. In Thailand and India, we like to add a little bit of chili, sugar and salt mixture in the guava to give the pungent taste.
So look out in your market, if you see this superfruit! Try it and let me know if you like it 🙂
Have a healthy day,
