A popular Asian flavour, which will create exotic drink recipes, guava fruit originate from Mexico, Central America and northern South America.
Round or oval with a bitter green or yellow skin, guava pulp is hard, slightly granular, pink, yellow or salmon pink and very fragrant.
Guava can be sweet or sour with a flavour varying somewhere between pear and strawberry, which works well in savoury or sweet dishes. It pairs well with lime, cream or custard and makes a delicious ice cream or sorbet.
