I believe Goya sells them in hispanic markets but they contain preservatives.

The Goya stuff isn't real high quality either.

JF,
I've never had the guava shells for dessert, looks so yummy. Any restaurants in LA/OC area that have them on their menu?
Thanks,

I've got some guavas started from seed last year - how long before they bear fruit?

You can go to Versalles, El Colmao, Cochinito in LA. Orange County Feliz Cafe or Moros

Goya is not very good. Ancel and Conchita are better but nothing like the ones you make at home.

No bags need in SoCal I just have birds peaking away as the ripen.

It take 3 years from seed for a decent amount

Ruby Supreme, X and 6-29 are excellent guavas with soft seeds.....Jalisco red and Dolores are practically seedless but they are in SoCal.

Try arrayan they are almost seedless very nice taste but small....I'll take a pic of my mom's neighbors tree they are now in season

What is a good gauva for beginners? my mother in law gave me a gauva from seed...ive got no intentions of keeping this seedling. However i need to replace it with a high tier variety without her knowing.i kniw thats bad right?

I hate the gauvas with the numerous hard seeds...really hard for me to eat out of hand.
Thinking about joining a Fruitaholics anonymous support group...Fruit addiction has taken over my life!

Most seedling are very mediocre. It would depend on the type of guavas you like red,pink, white or yellow ?
Here is a pic of arrayan guava next to Dolores mother tree

Thanks JF, afriadoni !

Summary of your recommendations:
  Ruby Supreme
  X
  6-29
  Jalisco Red
  Dolores
  Arrayan

It looks like Xcalibur has only Ruby X Supreme.

Sergo,
The Florida Turnbull is also an excellent guava with very smooth and creamy texture.

Jalisco red and Dolores available in Florida? They sound very interesting :) I went to excalibur's website in West Palm Beach I didn't see those two varieties. I find that guavas are very useful productive and have quite a long season

Great selection there. I have grown maroons,mexican creams, brazil orange and a range of pinks including HK pink as well as a range of other psidiums. Currently I only have one giant thai seedless white and the Brazilian orange is on thin ice after it didn't grow true and a P.guineense.
