Costa Rican guava is a species of guava found mostly in Costa Rica but also grown in Guatemala, Nicaragua and other Central American countries. It has been successfully grown in California now and can be grown in mild higher regions.

Usually used to make jams, jellies, and preserves, or as a flavoring for drinks. It is used as the base for fresco de Cas, in which Costa Ricans mix it with sugar and water and sometimes add cream for a slightly acidic fruit drink.

Delicious flavorful fruit is sub-acid, great for drinks of eating out of hand for those who like sweet-n-sour fruit. Lots of vitamin C.

The yellow fruit, 2-3" around, similar to the common guava growth habit is similar to the cattley guava. Mature trees seem capable of withstanding short frosts.

Seeds germinate readily and seedlings grow fast.
