The average size of our Guavas from this tree has been 413 grams, no Fruit Fly at all. These picked themselves in their bags, smart little beauties. I freeze them until I have enough to make Jelly and being frozen is an added benefit when making Smoothies.

Hi Susan, I just use them like any other fruit such as bananas or with bananas. I cut the seeds out for Graham, but I do use them frozen. They are also nice if you wizz them up and add milk. cream or ice cream and put them into an ice block mold.

I love the smell of guava in the morning, the smell permeates the house.
