Seedless Guava

I did something blog worthy the other day. Seriously, extremely blog worthy…

I bought a packet of whole guavas…

What? When I buy fruits in the supermarket, it is usually apples or oranges, and if I feel generous then grapes, strawberries, kiwis and mangoes. It is very rare for me to buy guava in the supermarket.

No, actually, come to think of it, I think I have never done that before. This was the first time I bought guavas from the supermarket.

Sure, I’ve eaten more than my fair share of guavas, in the form of those cut fruits from road side stalls. Or those prepared by my mom. But those don’t count because none of them involved me buying them whole from the supermarket.

So, yeah… it is a first for me. Hence it is blog worthy. Wahahahahaha!!!

I was particularly attracted by the label that indicated all the benefits of guava…

Really? The guava is really that good? I thought it is just a fruit…

What am I talking about? Fruits are good, aren’t they? Hmmm… πŸ™„

Time to cut one up and eat it…

Huh? What the heck is this discrepancy? Anyone notices the discrepancy??

I was quite disappointed because I had to dig the bits out, making the actual amount of guava I got to eat less than what I expected…

Anyway, it wasn’t a good guava. Kind of hard and crunchy, and not sweet at all. I think I prefer those ripe and soft guavas more… πŸ™„

  1. I also never buy guavas before in supermarkets, only at the stalls… yes, like you, I prefer those soft and sweet, not the crunchy hard ones.. unless they are sliced thinly and then mix with those sour plum powder.. πŸ™‚

    • You’ve never eaten guava? Hmm, maybe it is not common in China. I wonder if it is a tropical only fruit. In Cantonese we call it “chicken shit fruit”. I have no idea why. But it is usually pretty good to eat. πŸ˜›

  2. OMG!! You are like a spoilt child who never bought guavas! LOLOL
    I always stopped my car along the NKVE highways to buy bag fulls of Guava to give friends. I would also munch the crunchy guava while driving to stay awake. Yums!

  3. Hmmm, so your seedless guava wasn’t quite seedless….ask for a refund! Wakakakaka! πŸ˜€ I like my guava to be soft too. Perhaps, you were supposed to leave it for a day or two to ripen (and soften) so that it’ll be sweeter. I bought a custard apple from the market and the fruit seller told me to wait two days, so I’m going to listen to the advice of the expert πŸ˜‰ If the guava is hard and crunchy, I’d prefer to eat it with a mixture of asam boi & salt from a fruit stall. P/S: From all the benefits listed, I like the last one the best…hehe! ;D

    • Already gone into the tummy, how to refund? Even the box is gone (to the bin)… Yeah I guess I was supposed to leave them alone for a couple days, but… oh well… πŸ™„

  4. So they are not exactly 100% seedless, huh? I remember a time when there was a craze for eating guava with asam boi. Regular guavas have too many seeds and eating it can be a chore.

    • I think now also people still eat guava with asam boi powder. But I grew out of it already. These days if I buy from the stalls, I omit that…

  5. Seedless guava just means less seeds. The usual guava has much more seeds than that. For seedless guava, I usually chew up all the seeds as well because around the seeds, the flesh is sweeter. Your mother would approve big time that you eat this guava.

    • Seedless means less seed? I think I need to check my vocabulary skills again. πŸ™„

      Chew around the seeds = impossible for lazy man. Chew up the seeds = I cannot imagine that, to me seeds are inedible…

  6. If you had only showed the last picture and not mentioned guava, I would have guessed that the fruit was green apple πŸ™„

    I prefer pink coloured guava, which is less sweet but on the downside has less Vitamin C πŸ™„

      • Maybe you are good at being a quizmaster πŸ˜€

        When I posted my last comment, I realised that I forgot to mention that I prefer drinking guava juice than eating the fruit. In fact, in general I prefer fruit juices as opposed to eating the fruit themselves. And then I heard somewhere there is less vitamins in juices πŸ™„

        • It depends on how you make the juice. If you blend them then I think it is fine. If you squeeze them, like orange juice, then some of the vitamins is left in the flesh I think. πŸ™„
