Pink Guava Box
Psidium guajava, popularly known as Pink Guava is said to have originated from southern Mexico or Central America.
Pink Guava is a flavorful pear-shaped fruit with a smooth outer skin that is light green in color. The taste pf this immensely flavorful fruit is reminiscent of strawberry and pear, with a soft, but firm fruit flesh. Guavas are often eaten whole, along with the small edible seeds. The fruit is also commonly sliced in half and eaten with a spoon.
Guava fruit is cultivated all throughout the tropics and subtropics. The fruit is rich with antioxidants, potassium, vitamin C and dietary fiber. In fact, a single Guava contains more vitamin C than an orange.
Guavas are green in color when they are picked from the tree at maturity. The fruits slowly change from a leaf green color to a light greenish yellow when the fruit is ripe and ready to eat. The ripe fruit should be soft when gently squeezed, with a strong tropical scent. Guavas should be ripened at room temperature until they display these characteristics, then they are ready to be enjoyed. Unripe fruit should not be refrigerated, as this will suspend the natural ripening process. Ripe Guava may be placed in the refrigerator for several days.
Our Pink Guava is grown and picked locally right here in Miami. With the support of our partners and local growers, we are able to offer a few different varieties throughout the year according to their respective seasons.
Please allow us 1-2 weeks to ship your Guava Box during the Guava season, as this allows us to ensure the fruits are picked at the perfect stage for optimal flavor and quality.
An excellent way to reserve your delicious box of Guavas is to place a Pre-Order (see Pre-Orders below for more information). It’s well worth the wait, so don’t miss out!
