    Every part of the guava fruit is edible. Everything from the flesh to the seeds to the rind is fair game. Do not try to eat the rind unless you have washed it first. You can remove the skin before eating the fruit if you don't care for the rind.

    High levels of vitamins (especially vitamin C in the rind and outer flesh) and high amounts of antioxidants are just two of the many benefits of guavas that have been confirmed by scientific research. In addition to being high in fiber, they also have ellagic acid, which has anti-cancer properties. Guava, more so than many other fruits, can aid in the absorption of dietary iron. As an added bonus, guava leaf extract has been shown to alleviate symptoms of urinary tract infections, menstrual pain, and possibly even diarrhea and coughing spasms; however, you should always consult your doctor before trying anything new. For optimal nutrient absorption, they should be consumed alongside a wide variety of other fresh fruits.
