Guava- the Health giver.

 The guava flower looks  delicate and beautiful.
The guava fruit is rich in vitamin C and fibre, besides having many other health giving qualities. The seeds of the guava fruit can cause stomach problems.
Although the guava is a native of the Americas, it has naturalised itself in India, so that it is hard to believe that it is not a native plant. Its fruit is used to make jellies and jams and juices. Its leaves are used in folk medicine to get rid of head lice.
