Fruit Trees of Bangalore – RA – Psidium Guajava – Guava Tree:  One of the most gregarious of fruit trees, the guava of the Bottlebrush family, is almost universally known by its common English name or its equivalent in other languages. 

A small tree to 33 ft (10 in) high, with spreading branches, the guava is easy to recognize because of its smooth, thin, copper-colored bark that flakes off, showing the greenish layer beneath; and also because of the attractive, “bony” aspect of its trunk which may in time attain a diameter of 10 in (25 cm)  
Faintly fragrant, the white flowers, borne singly or in small clusters in the leaf axils, are 1 in (2.5 cm) wide, with 4 or 5 white petals which are quickly shed, and a prominent tuft of perhaps 250 white stamens tipped with pale-yellow anthers.  
The fruit, exuding a strong, sweet, musky odor when ripe, may be round, ovoid, or pear-shaped, 2 to 4 in (5-10 cm) long, with 4 or 5 protruding floral remnants (sepals) at the apex; and thin, light-yellow skin, frequently blushed with pink.

Delicious photos, Is this tree from Region of Tropical America?

Fruits & Vegetables :: Black Guava :030111:AK: Flowers & fruit of Black Guava from our home garden at Nasik, Maharashtra.
Fruit is pink from inside. 


Just today I checked on FOI site and found the flowers to be same as ‘Red Malaysian Guava’, Psidium guajava


Is this variety the same as those found in Allahabad.


/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Red%20Malaysian%20Guava-62440019.JPG

 

I found one more picture taken on Nikon F-65 at Nainital & scanned later.
This will show the Black Guava better.
Name was given as Black Guava and said to be rare.
Now with …  post….thought of sharing this picture. 


the black Guava is sold here at Chandigarh at one of the nurseries.
once when i was in that nursery to buy some plants a female came there and started fighting with the owner. she had a complaint that the black guava plant which she bought though bore fruits with a red inside pulp tastes like water. to which the nursery owner said that you cant get everything from a plant….differently looking black fruits and they should also be tasty…thats not possible…. but i personally think that that can be possible if the plant is grown at its native place or more suitable conditions…
