I and my two daughters simply cannot wait for November to come. Why? Because that is the time of the year when guavas are in abundance for the next three months and we all pig on them like we have never seen them before. Ripe or unripe, red or white we eat them with relish. Be it with a bit of spices sprinkled on it or just plain, as a jam or juice or even as a pickle, we simply cannot get enough of the lovely fruit. There are lots of reasons to eat guavas apart from the fact that they taste great. Every fruit or vegetable invented by nature has certain beneficial properties for our bodies. Here I will discuss why guavas are great to eat for our good health.
