Scientific Name:Psidium guajava L.

The guava is one of the best known cultivated plants of the tropics, and it does not seem necessary to cite records of its occurrence in our area. For a description see Field Mus. Publ. Bot. 13(4) [Fl. Peru]: 794. 1958. Plants that are intermediate in various ways between this species and Psidium guineense are sometimes collected, and may well represent individuals of hybrid origin.
