Here is what I did.  Put the Surinam cherry in a bowl of cold water and let it sit for few hours.  That is make it taste a lot better. If not eat the peel, totally tasty.  Cold water is cold not room temperature water.  Add ice to it is even better.

I brought this taiwan guava from the local supermarket.  It is big, crunchy, not too much of the guava favor, it is more like eating a crunchy pear.   It looks like a emperor or pearl guava compared the pictures online.  I am going to germinate some of the seeds.  Hope it come out true.
