Guava

Posted on Posted in Fruits

Guavas are plants in the Myrtle family (Myrtaceae) genus Psidium   which contains about 100species of tropical shrubs and small trees.

Guava is also called Amrood (  ‘امرود’) in North India and Pakistan, which is possibly a variant of Armoot meaning “pear” in Arabic and Turkish languages, and possibly linked to the Moghul occupation of this region.
