Do you know where Guavas are from? I knew they were a tropical fruit, but I never sat down to really think about their origin. Well what good is the internet if you can’t find answers to your questions, so we did a little guava searching!
Guavas are native to Mexico, Central America, Northern South America, parts of the Caribbean, and in some tropical areas as well. They have distinct dark green elliptical leaves and five pedaled white flowers. In certain areas, the guava will be green to yellow, but in others it drastically differs with a pink to red hue. No matter the color, this fruit can be considered a superfruit. The guava is abundant in Vitamins C and A, omega-3 and 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, and has especially high levels of dietary fiber. Guavas are sweet and tangy all in one big bite. No wonder the Torani syrup is so delicious! They grabbed the best of both worlds!!

Another fruit I have always been curious about is the Pomegranate. I had no idea it was a shrub! Or that it grew in the Middle East’s drier areas! We’ve brought this ruby fruit to the US to California and Arizona for their juice production abilities. These red flowered beauties can be between a lemon or grapefruit in size. These too are high in Vitamin C and B5. Torani is taking the syrup world by storm with these good-for-you fruits!
