- n. Same as guava.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Surrounding the cleared portions around Greytown is a scrubby bush, amongst which are many guayava trees (Psidium sp.) having a fruit like a small apple filled with seeds, of a sub-acid flavour, from which the celebrated guava jelly is made.
This plain was covered with thousands of guayava trees, laden with sufficient fruit to make guava jelly for all the world.
I've used frozen guayava and mango juice before.:) my blender died so i gotta use juices, ice creams, and other liquids for now.
