Our neighbor's plant on the terrace has this guava ripening .Hope they pluck it before the birds or squirrels get at it , if they are keen on eating the fruit ! Already I can see two marks here .

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

another fond memory of India. we don't get them over here

@grouser: I thought guavas were available all over the world ! But grouser, I think that the Fiji Guavas are the best..They are huge, crunchy and have lesser seeds. We get them here in the markets the months of October, November and January.

A bird has been sampling it to see if it's ripe. Neat shot.
