Otherwise known as Bangkok Apples, these organic guavas are a healthy treat! High in fiber and nutrients, while being low in sugar. You can wait for them to get soft or just eat them like an apple while they’re crispy. The seeds are edible, but can be hard so don’t chew them. Instead, swallow them whole.
Guavas are native and very popular in Central and South America, the guavas in your basket were grown in Valley Center. They’re flesh is white (you may be familiar with pink ones). Guavas are a low glycemic fruit that has lots of health benefits, from controlling blood sugar to weight loss.
As it ripens, it will start to get very fragrant and it is sweeter the softer it gets.
Rinse and dry it first because the skin is edible
Slice thinly. You can sprinkle with salt…or just bite into it! Or use in a smoothie.
Whole guavas can be a sweet snack that makes you feel like you’re in paradise even while working in your cubicle!
