Guavas are usually round or oval and approximately 2 to 4 inches in diameter. Embedded in the center of the pulp are numerous (100 to 500) tiny, peach-colored, round edible seeds. The seeds encircle a pulp that is softer, sweeter, and less granular than the outer part of the fruit. The thin skin, green and tart when unripe, can take on shades of yellow, white, pink, or light green when ripe and edible.
