Mexican Cream guavas offer aromas of pineapple and passion fruit. Mexican Cream guava are small to medium-small, roundish fruits have a pale yellow skin that is often slightly blushed with red. The flesh is creamy, white, thick and aromatic. Mexican Cream guavas are sweet, with a classically tropical guava flavor. They have a small seed cavity that holds a handful of soft seeds.
In warmer tropical-like climates, guavas can grow year-round. These Southern California guavas are harvested in the fall.
Mexican Cream guava is also known as Tropical Yellow guava, for the region in which it thrives.
The pulp is the most widely used part of the Mexican Cream guava. Slice the guava lengthwise, remove the seeds (if their crunch is undesirable) and cut the white flesh into chunks. The chunks can be boiled down to make marmalade, sauces, and syrups or used to make a paste. The guava paste is paired with creamy cheeses, like mascarpone or cream cheese in Mexico to make a dish known as bocadillo con queso.
The origin of the Mexican Cream guava lies in its name. The fruit can be found growing throughout Mexico and Central America and has adapted to many other tropical climates. It can be found in farmer's markets in the southern US.
