A year or so ago, I planted a dwarf guava tree because, well, I
like guavas, I saw this tree at a nursery, and I don't have room
for a full-size fruit tree. :-)
Last year it put out a dozen or so small fruits. I wasn't sure
whether I was supposed to eat the rinds or not and couldn't
find any dwarf guava sites that had that information, so although
it was a challenge and I lost a fair bit of pulp in the process,
I did peel them.
I just tried again and was able to find out that it's fine to
eat the rinds of ripe guavas. So I guess I can eat these dwarf
ones whole, but are there any uses for which I'd be better off
peeling them? E.g., can a blender make the rinds smooth in drinks,
or if I want guava juice, would I be advised to use only the pulp?
Anyone who's had experience with dwarf fruits, please suggest
any other ideas you might have for using my guavas (either with
or without the rinds!).
