Whenever we go for a walk Catie looks for guava (guayaba) trees. The birds also like these fruits, so ripe ones are surprisingly hard to find. The ripe fruit is a soft yellow on the outside, and inside is bright pink.
She's pretty persistent when she sees a ripe one. She managed to shake two down out of this tree.

There's a guava forest across from our farm, and despite the huge number of trees, Catie didn't find even one ripe guava. She has a lot of competion from the birds and the wild animals.

They use Guava on reveg projects because the birds like them. The hope is that the birds will fly over the deforested area and drop seeds of guava and other trees.
