Uses of a Guava Tree

All-Year Round Tropical Fruit Tree

The guava tree is the most common tropical fruit tree in any tropical areas. It is most especially common in the Asian countries. It commonly thrives in tropical areas because guava fruit tree survive best in these weather conditions.

Here in the Philippines, because of the weather, we have a variety of guavas from small guavas with red seeds to big ones with white seeds. This fruit tree is abundant here and grows on almost every backyard.

In our place, we also have this tree right in our own backyard.

The Guava tree is a very sturdy tree that only dances with the strong rain or winds. It does not grow very tall.

I love eating guavas. When I was still younger, I used to climb this tree and eat the fruit fresh from the tree. It is the freshest way to gobble it up. I love the feeling that I'm right up there in the tree and I'm eating my own guava. I love to eat the tiny guavas where the seeds are pink, although there are big guavas that have pink seeds also. It is a very healthy fruit.

There are a lot of ways to do with guava fruit tree right from the tree itself up to the branches, the leaves and the fruit.

The guava fruit tree is a year-round tree because it grows the whole year through. With only rainy and sunny season in the Philippines, guavas can grow and flourish here.

You can actually eat the guava fruit right from the tree itself. I love to eat it paired with salt. That's our favorite way to eat it with my siblings. For the big types of guavas, you have to cut it with the knife in order to have slices of guavas that easy to munch on.

You can also make jam and jellies out from the guava fruit. The very ripe guava is a good source for the guava jam. Just cook the mashed ripe guava in equal amounts with sugar, stir while cooking, wait until thick and then serve hot or place it in a jar.

Guava Leaves

The guava leaf has a distinct smell to it. You will actually know that it is guava leaf because you can smell the fruit right from the guava leaf. The guava leaf is a good way to wash wounds because it has a cleansing property against germs.

How to do this? The leaves are pounded till the juice comes out from it. It is then placed on the wound after it has been washed with water.

For washing, boil guava leaves with an ample amount of water. When the water has turned green in color, leave it to cool down. This boiled water with guava leaves is good for washing the wound areas.

In the olden times, this wash is used to bathe people who have just been after a fever. I don't have explanation for this but I just believe the old folks especially my great grandmother. Before we go take a bath, she boils the guava leaves and mixes this with the water that we are to take a bath with. Sounds not cool, but I guess they work.

The guava leaf in the present times has now been made into soaps. This antibacterial action of the guava makes it a good soap for germ protection. The soap is now more accessible tool to use guava leaf.

The guava fruit tree is a very strong tree that does not easily break out. The guava tree has proven to be a very powerful tree for many years now.

This tree provides a good source for shade especially under the heat of the sun. It can cool down an area because it can spread out and cast a shadow that will provide a cooling shade.

Another thing you could do with the guava tree is make a brush for the teeth out form its branch. Yes, it is possible and it really works. I remember when I was younger, my mother would cut out a small branch out from the tree, pound the tip of it and use it to brush our teeth (not everyday use though, only once in a while) because it actually helps whiten the teeth. I believe it works because my teeth, my sibling's teeth and my mother's teeth actually look much whiter after we do that brushing with the guava branch.
