Cherry Guava is also known as Strawberry Guava and is considered to have the best flavor of any Guava. Round fruits are either bright red or yellow, with a strawberry-like taste. This guava withstands more cold than common guava, and survives temperatures down to 22 degrees Fahrenheit. The red-fruited variety is more cold-hardy than the yellow-fruited strawberry guava. Golf ball sized fruit
