Guava from taiwan
« on: February 18, 2018, 12:13:18 PM »
My friend gave me a guava from his new tree, that is from Taiwan.

It was best guave i ever had, very nice sweet with fresh sour. He grow it organic in special bags to protect from sun. It was not nice green but grey skin but taste was very good. Better then all the Thai guava's.

Have you tried these guava's? They are new he said.

No my battery was empty, but it has white flesh baseball size.

I hope the Taiwan members can tell about the new guava's, they have more new varieties.

Did it have seeds?

The sweetest best tasting green skinned crunchy guava Iíve ever eaten was what I believe is an Indonesian or Thai seedless guava.

I ate indonesian guava but they were so tasteless...and thai seedless also taste bad, no flavour.

We have sweet one for eating crispy but from Taiwan is much better. I will ask my friend for clone his tree and replace mine.

His tree always has fruit but have to wait long time before it is ripe.

Thai guava always look very nice green but that is from spray chemicals. My friend grow in bags from white fabric but then the fruit get gray.

His guava has seeds but not much, he said Taiwan has more new variety so i will try to find it.

There are a few great types here.  Your friendDis probably organic, but most guacamole, and other fruit is bagged then sprayed quite a lot.  I personally don't eat store bought for that reason.

I also find the pink flesh and the true purple guavas incredibly sweet.
