Guava is a fruit about the same size as an apple and is a really common tropical fruit. When ripe, the skin of a guava is a light yellow colour, while its pulp is juicy and contains small seeds. Guava's flesh can be any of a range of colours from white to yellow and through to a light pink. Guavas are eaten raw, stewed or made into pies or jams.
