Pineapple guavas are oblong and slightly egg-shaped. Pineapple guavas are dull-green or yellow-green, sometimes showing a red or orange blush. This fruit is very aromatic with tropical fruit nuances, even before the fruit is fully ripe. The flesh is thick, creamy white, granular and watery, similar to the texture of a pear. This flesh surrounds a translucent central pulp that encloses very small oblong edible seeds. Pineapple guavas are known for their strong tropical flavor with pineapple, guava, and strawberry tasting notes.
Pineapple guavas are available during the fall months.
Pineapple guavas are also known as Guavasteen, and are scientifically classified as Acca sellowianas. The small round fruits are members of the Myrtaceae (myrtle) family along with cloves and eucalyptus. Pineapple guava is the common name given to dozens of cultivars, which will share similar characteristics but also distinguish themselves from one another by size, aromatics, flavor, ripening times, and even coloring.
