Guavas can also be distorted in their fresh form, but they are usually used to make compote, liqueur, jam, juice or sauce into desserts. Fresh guavas taste best when they are lightly chilled, peeled and mixed with sugar, brandy or rum.
The guava can be eaten like a kiwi, which means you cut it open and simply spoon it out. The seeds contained in the flesh can be eaten without any problems, but should not be chewed as they are very hard and can damage the teeth. However, all seeds are in the middle of the fruit, so they can be removed before eating.
