Guava is native to the Caribbean. The skin is green or yellow and can be either pear-shaped or round. Guava flesh can be white, red or salmon-colored. Good quality guava should be picked as you would an avocado - it should be stored at room temperature until it gives to gentle pressure. Scar and scuff marks are natural and do not affect the quality.
Avoid product that is overly soft or has soft spots that are visibly discolored.
