Botanical Name: Campomanesia schlechtendaliana

General Information: Campomanesia Schlechtendaliana is a rapidly growing evergreen tree that can reach a height of 15 meters, featuring a pyramid crown and a grooved bole measuring 20-30 cm. Native to the Atlantic Forest of southeastern Brazil, this species thrives in full or partial sun.

Fruits: The tree produces flattened, globular fruits with a wrinkled, yellowish-green exterior. The fruits, measuring 3 cm in diameter, contain a large amount (70% or more by weight) of delightful sweet-sour pulp along with small seeds. The fruits mature during the summer months, typically in July-August in the northern hemisphere and January-February in the southern hemisphere.

Health Benefits: Early research indicates potential health benefits associated with guava consumption, including the lowering of blood pressure when consumed daily in place of high-fat foods for an extended period. Additionally, guava leaf extract may show promise in reducing pain and stiffness in individuals with knee pain.
