Presents: Pineapple Guavas Known as feijoa and guavasteen. These evergreen, perennial shrub or small trees,grown upwards of 7 meters. Pineapple Guavas are not true Guavas. although they are part of the myrtle family (Myrtaceae)
like True Guavas. Guavas are part of the genus Psidium (meaning "pomegranate" in Latin), Guavas contains about 100 species of tropical shrubs and small trees.
Pineapple Guava or
Acca sellowiana, is one of the many species of the myrtle family, They are native to the highlands of southern Brazil, Colombia, Uruguay, and northern Argentina.Pineapple Guava's are widely cultivated as a garden plant and fruiting tree in New Zealand, and can be found as a garden plant in Australia and Azerbaijan.
Guavas are included in my series on nutraceutical plants that can be used as both for food and medicine.
Guavas are often included among superfruits, being rich in dietary fiber, vitamins A and C, folic acid, and the dietary minerals, potassium, 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.
Major Class of Antioxidant
Guavas contain both carotenoids and polyphenols like (+)-gallocatechin,guaijaverin, leucocyanidin and amritoside -- the major classes of antioxidant pigments -- giving them relatively high potential antioxidant value among plant foods.[7] As these pigments produce the fruit skin and flesh color, guavas that are red-orange have more pigment content as polyphenol, carotenoid and pro-vitamin A, retinoid sources than yellow-green ones.
