Native to the tropical Americas, the guava is often found growing wild and roadside in central and south Florida. Guava fruit are very nutritious, rich in vitamins A and C, and the seeds contain omega-3 and omega-6. It can be trained to grow as a small tree, and may be planted in central Florida. Keep an eye on it, however; guava are considered invasive in South Florida and shouldn't be planted there.
