Every time I visit Indian store here, I look for Guavas. They are one of my favorite fruit. I like them when they are semi-ripe and crunchy, not the smelly ripe ones. Guava is good just as it is but with a touch of salt and red chili powder it's a perfect harmony of sweet, spice and saltiness. I had a blast when I visited my Husband's grandma's place in India. They have a huge Guava tree in front yard bursting with fruit. I literally stayed under the tree during the whole time I was there :). Here is a picture of the fresh fruit we picked then.
