The bark is gray and has spots. The leaves are light green. The flowers are white, large, fragrant, solitary or in small clusters.
Its fruits, which can be found on our markets from May to November, taste like a mix of strawberry, pear, banana and peach.
Guava is rich in antioxidants, more than all the other fruits, and contains much more vitamin C than orange; It can also boast a high amount of dietary fiber and a substantial presence of minerals including magnesium, potassium, calcium, copper and phosphorus. Guava seeds have a very good vitamin A content, vitamins of the B complex, vitamin E and iodine. Guava leaves are rich in chlorophyll.
It is an evergreen plant, in the places of origin the leaves are always attached to the branches even in winter. At our latitudes instead, following periods of intense cold, the plant can undress to then return to vegetate in the spring season. The cattleianum however, if placed in a protected position, is limited to losing only a few leaves, changing the color of the leaves remained attached to the branches from intense green to reddish-green.
