Hi Huerta, Are these relate to the Guayabita Cubana, I read some time ago that the species was invasive , and in some Country,s such as Africa you could not plant this type of Guayava.

Hola Huertsas I think the one I have is the same thing,  it probably was  spread around to many countries, so many names for one fruit can drive you loco. I  went back to the article that I read some time ago!  here is a link to it.

Guinea guava is one of the most common and widespread. Mine is 15 years old and is a very good selection. They fruit prolifically and several times a year. Yes they fruit very fast from seed. Lemon and pineapple guava are other common names and soft seeded selections are favoured.

Hey Mike. Can you tell me about the fruit? When I google images of a yellow skin guava shows but the one I just bought the seeds were imported from Australia and are supposed to be red/yellow and grow in clusters. Also taste was reported to be like pineapple/lime flavor?
