Guava is a good source of vitamin-C and lycopene. 100g of guava provides 228 mg of vitamin-C which is more than three times the required daily recommended intake. This super-fruit is soft when ripe with sweet musky aroma and creamy texture flesh. Internally, its flesh varies in color depending on the cultivar and may be white, pink, yellow, or red. Fresh ripe guava is best enjoyed with its skin on.
