No, its Guayaba-and its so, so good- in every way.
Guayaba (Guava) is in season and our all natural guayaba juice is one of our most coveted treats. We grow the green variety in our orchard and it’s an HZ favorite! This nutritionally dense fruit is rich in vitamin A, folate, fiber, and dietary minerals such as potassium, copper, and manganese. It also provides 4x more vitamin C than an orange! How’s that for goodness? Its native to Mexico, Central America, and South America but is now grown throughout the tropics in Africa , Asia, and the Caribbean . It can also be found in Hawaii , New Zealand, Australia, and Spain . There is a long history of the medicinal value of the guayaba tree and its fruit. For instance, many cultures turn to a tea made from guayaba leaves to treat diarrhea, dysentery, and fever. From a distance, the guayaba might be mistaken for a lime. And while the skin is tough, it is edible. The inside of the fruit is white, with edible seeds. Many guests have said it reminds them of a cross between an apple and a pear. Like a pear, some prefer it ripe, while others enjoy it slightly green. Either way, it’s a delicious and healthy treat. When in season, our farm offers a bounty of organically grown guayaba. Come for a visit and enjoy!
