Guavas (Psidium guajava, of the family Myrtaceae) are native to tropical America and are grown in nearly all tropical areas in the world. The fruit of the best-known guava, P. guajava var. pyriferum, varies greatly in size, up to 0.5 lb, and color, from white to yellow or red. The fruit from P. guajava var. pomiferum is smaller and redder. P. cat-tleianum or P. littorale, native to Brazil, has small, round, purple fruit.

It is widely used for jams, jellies, preserves, and confections. The fruit contains about 240 mg/100 g of vitamin C and has been promoted as a good source of vitamin C.
