Guava, also known as Psidium guajava, is a tropical fruit that grows on the guava tree, a small evergreen tree in the myrtle family. It is native to Central America, but is now cultivated in many tropical and subtropical regions around the world.

The fruit is round or oval in shape, and typically ranges from about 2 to 4 inches in length. The skin of the fruit is thin and usually green or yellow, while the flesh inside can be white, yellow, pink, or red, depending on the variety. The fruit is fragrant and sweet, with a slightly grainy texture and numerous small seeds in the center.

Guava is known for its high vitamin C content and a range of other nutrients, including fiber, potassium, and antioxidants. It is often eaten fresh or used in jams, jellies, and other sweet preparations. In some cultures, it is also used to make drinks, including juices and teas. The leaves of the guava tree are also used in traditional medicine to treat a variety of ailments, including digestive issues and respiratory problems.
