Guava (from Spanish Guayaba; Goiaba in Portuguese) is a genus of about 100 species of tropical shrubs and small trees in the myrtle family Myrtaceae, native to the Caribbean, Central America and northern South America.
The guava may be propagated by grafting or air layering but is commonly grown from seed. The disadvantage of the latter method is that seedlings do not always reproduce the characteristics of the parent. Seedlings bear fruit during the second year.
South Africa, India, Hawaii & Malaysia are the major producers and exporters of Guava & Products.
