Green guava in the tree

Guava — a very common fruit in Bangladesh

Guavas are plants in the Myrtle family (Myrtaceaegenus Psidium (meaning “pomegranate” in Latin), which contains about 100 species of tropical shrubs and small trees. They are quite common in Bangladesh now-a-days.

Guavas are rich in dietary fiber, vitamins A and Cfolic acid, and the dietary mineralspotassium, copper and manganese. Having a generally broad, low-calorie profile of essential nutrients, a single common guava (P. guajava) fruit contains about four times the amount of vitamin C as an orange.
