In the store with Sigona’s Featuring: Guavas


Guavas are a delicious tropical fruit known for their sweet fragrance that is hard to resist.

Here’s some tips to help you pick:

  • A ripe guava should be slightly soft under pressure.
  • Place green guavas in a paper bag with a banana or apple for faster ripening.
  • Ripe guavas should be stored in the refrigerator for up to two days.
  • Guavas are easy to freeze; slightly tart guavas are best for freezing.
  • To freeze guavas, wash and peel them first. Then halve them and take out the seeds. Frozen guavas will keep for about 8 months.

Guavas are delicious all on their own or in a variety of dishes, including jam, relish, chutney, marmalade and sauces.
