Guava trees can grow up to three metres tall so ours is about as big as they get. The kids' swing hangs from the guava tree and the ground underneath the tree is full of half-eaten guavas that the green parrots drop from the tree. The other day I counted atleast 30 parrots flying from the tree! You can't really see them while they're sitting on the branches as they're green but you can surely hear them!
There are at least two kinds of ants running up and down the tree. It was sooo difficult to get a picture of them! The bark is soft and greenish brown, a lovely mixture of colours.
There are lots of different kinds of guavas but ours are yellow when ripe and deep pink on the inside.
This is the flower where the fruit then comes from.
Some curly leaves that Luana wanted me to take a picture of.
When we got home it was time to taste some... They're really sweet and yummy and contain up to four times the amount of vitamin C found in an orange. There's more information on guava's properties in wikipedia.
