Guava is a tropical fruit with immense health-promoting qualities, which has labeled it as a ?super-fruit.? When ripe, the fruit is soft with a sweet musky smell, creamy-textured flesh, and sweet-tart taste. Depending on the cultivar type, the internal flesh can vary in color from white, pink, yellow and red. Guava carries vital vitamins and minerals that play a pivotal role in preventing cancers, aging, and infections. Some of these healthy compounds include dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium, and lycopene (a pigment that prevents skin damage).
