The most common apple guava received its name because its coloring is so similar to that of a green apple, with hues of lemon and lime. The fruit is roughly spherical with a furrowed smooth surface.
Tampoi are large, orange colored and smooth skinned, round fruits. They have a very thick pithy rind that surrounds a white, segmented, seeded flesh, similar in appearance to mangosteen.

Baby Gold beets are available the year-round.
The Gold beet, Beta vulgaris, is a root vegetable and member of the Chenopodiaceae family. There are several varieties of Gold beets, however not all Gold beet varieties produce the same quality beet. The "Touchstone Gold" is one of the choice varieties of beets that is produced on a commercial-level scale. Baby Gold beets are cultivated as a table beet, though they do contain betaxanthin pigments which could serve as food coloring.
Baby Gold beets are harvested young for their edible roots, stems and leaves. 10-12 inch green leafy stems ascend from the Gold beet's rough deep orange, bulbous root. Beets have the highest sugar content of any vegetable and Gold beets are the standard of sweetness. Their flavor is smooth and creamy with just a hint of earthiness. The flesh of the baby Gold beet is bright yellow and unlike Red beets, its coloring does not bleed, though it retains its color when cooked. Beet greens have a similar semi-bitter flavor to swiss chard. Gold beets can be harvested at any time during their growing cycle. If left to mature the roots can reach up to an average of three inches in diameter.
Gold beets are a great source of the phytonutrients called betalains. Betalains have both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties which can create detoxifying effects. Betalians are not heat-stable, though, so longer cooking times can decrease their presence in beets.
Baby Gold beets should be steamed or roasted to bring out their beast flavor and texture. Their smaller size will shorten required cooking time. The skin is easily peeled once cooked. Gold beets can be used to replace Red beets in any given beet recipe. Gold beets pair well with citrus, especially tangerines and lemons, butter lettuce, parsley, chives, tarragon, cumin, bacon, buttermilk, creme fraiche, smoked fish, cheeses such as chèvre and gorgonzola, walnuts, hazelnuts and wine vinegars such as champagne and red wine. Gold beets are a great salad and soup beet and they can be preserved by pickling them with the use of a basic pickling recipe. Beet greens can be used for salads or as a pot herb.
All cultivated beets are descendents of the sea beet (B. maritima), a wild seashore plant found growing along the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts of Europe and North Africa. The sea beet, though was more weed-like with no edible root. Romans are credited with the cultivation of wild beets into domesticated beets, primarily using the plant for its greens. Domesticated beets evolved into an edible root vegetable. The discovery of beet's high sugar content led to its increased agricultural value. Gold beets are native to Europe. Though their exact origins are unknown, their original purpose was as feedstock. Although beets are tolerant of heat, they prefer a cooler climate for prolific and expeditious growing. It is common horticultural knowledge that faster beets grow, the better the flavor.
