Guava Season!

October in Georgia is Guava Season, and Coverland farms produces a couple quarts of pineapple guava each day – What is really great about pineapple guava is that they have a beautiful flower of red, pink, and white in early summer that is stunning, as well as the fruit in the fall. The fruit tastes like a mix between a pear and a pineapple, with a “sour patch” taste for the skin. Often you’ll just scoop out the insides and pass on the skin.

Guava juice, jam, and served hot with vanilla ice cream are all traditional ways to eat this delicious fruit. It’s also quite good in muffins, pastries and salsas.
