The common one is known as pearl guava.  It is a large hard guava that is subtle in sweetness. There is very little of the typical guava taste in it.  There are of course other varieties out there.

I have one for about a year and a half, it's the only Guava I have that is not thriving. I wish it would because it appears unlike some to be pretty resistant to scale infestations.

Pearl and Crystal  are two Taiwan varieties introduced by their agriculture extension  program here in the D.R.    they have been well received by consumers.  I would go as far and say they have taken the guava market, rarely do i see the older smaller ones in markets.  ( strawberry types ).

To increase Brix levels, make sure the tree is fully mature before allowing it to hold fruit. Also make sure your tree gets maximum sun exposure and don't overwater your tree. In the agriculture industry, they will do plant and soil analysis so that they know what nutrients or elements are required by the tree.

As a backyard orchard grower, you can follow my above recommendations and also thin about half of the set fruit off your tree so that your tree can concentrate its resources on fewer high quality fruit. If you are not currently fertilizing your tree, you can add some Potassium, Calcium, minute amounts of Boron but it gets very detailed so it may be easier to feed about once a month with an organic fruit tree fertilizer. I've found organic fertilizers are more forgiving and easier to use for newbies. I also use Azomite to replenish my soils.

I think you will find most large crisp and green eating guavas in Taiwan were introduced from Thailand.The typical large fruited types have low seed numbers with seedless types becoming more widespread recently.

Yes I think you are correct,  the Crystal has been chosen by most growers here.
