Thai Guavas are generally the size of a softball with apple green skin that can range from bumpy to smooth. The flesh is white with pale yellow seeds and tends to be drier than the pink type of Guavas. Thai Guavas are only mildly sweet and have very little fragrance. The crunchy flesh and hard seeds are both edible.
Although Guava is a fruit, its culinary uses are nearly unlimited. Guava can be eaten whole for simple fresh eaten. They may be used for applications both sweet and savory, fresh, cooked, hot and cold. Perfect companion ingredients which will bring out more complexity of flavor in a Guava include bananas, chocolate, mango, ginger, pears, vanilla, cinnamon and sweet wines such as Gewurtztraminer.
