The Brazilian Guava, or Araca Pera, is subtropical to tropical fruiting shrub/tree native to the Brazilian Amazon. It’s a rare Psidium variety of the Myrtaceae family, related to Surinam Cherries, Bay Rum, and our other Guava varieties.  The Brazilian Guava tree, a container-friendly guava variety, can reach up to 20 ft. tall in the full sun, creating a canopy of distinct, ruffled leaves and small, 5-petalled white flowers with more than 300 stamens. Their satin-like bark peels easily from the branches and is beloved for its ornamental qualities. 

The cold-hardy Brazilian Guava grows fragrant blossoms which become pale yellow 3” diameter fruits with pulpy centers of sour, acidic flavor. Many dilute the highly-concentrated guava centers up to 10 times before sweetening them into jams, sorbets, and juices. To eat fresh, some recommend adding honey, and however you decide to eat it, be sure to enjoy the wild taste of the Amazon!
