I image the weather is lovely for you at the moment Delonix. Does the guava taste sweet? I am really not familiar with it.

Yes, the weather is nice now...about 73F/23C or so during the day.

This is a very sweet variety with no so many seeds. It's also a very fragrant fruit. I have some guava trees in my yard and use the fruit as an air freshener in the house.

Guava trees are very widely grown here. I think almost everyone has at least one or more in their yard here.
