Bet it is of Thai origin and rebadged in Taiwan a bit like some wax apples.

I am growing two white crunchy guava varieties that look exactly like this, not sure if they are from Taiwan or Thailand or Vietnam, but sweet and crunchy and with similar shape/size as in this video. Is there something they talk in the video , something that is different from the usual asian crunchy guavas?

The other new variety from Taiwan which looks like a peanut can also have a round shape...not all of them look like a peanut.

I've had those a few times, they are really seedless and taste good...

It looks like my favorite 'Milk' guava that I used to eat in my college years in Taiwan, but this one is bigger.
This variety translated 'Pearl Crunchy' guava. The milk guava is not very crunchy, but has enough chewiness and the meat kind of melting in your mouth.
I am thinking to visit Taiwan after the pandemic is over.
Anyone can suggest how I can bring plants back?
The other plant I want to bring here, is seedless lychee. It is not completely seedless, but the seed is the size of sunflower seed, and it is very fragrant and juicy.
I still have no idea if Taiwan will allow their precious improved varieties being brought overseas though.

Taiwan has restrictions on allowing is good fruit trees out.Yeah the seedless lychees are causing a stir. I will get a marcotted one soon but may be a bit hot for it.

It doesn't matter if Thailand wants that, i've already seen them in Thailand for sale but maybe it was another new Taiwanese guava...
Those new improved fruittree's from Taiwan are sought after, they will be for sale everywhere soon. Just like the fingerlimes, wax apples, mango's.
