I adore guava. They smell like perfume and their flavor is perfection. I enjoy guava juice, paste, and guava flavored sweets. But when I buy fresh guava, I have trouble eating them because of the dozens of rock hard little seeds. When I was in Hawaii, I would just spit the seeds out on the ground as I ate. But I'm in the midwest in the middle of winter right now. I won't enjoy standing on my patio to spit seeds as my fingers freeze off. But I couldn't resist buying some because they smelled so delightful. Does anyone have any experience and advice eating fresh guava?

If you slice it across the equator rather than pole-to-pole direction, you could just scoop seeds out with a teaspoon?

(Also, just saw you sigged me! Wheee!)

I just eat the seeds, swallow em whole! They are too scattered throughout to not.

Swallowing the seeds makes me feel like I'm going to choke. I can't do it. Maybe I'll just mush them through a strainer and then add the squished up fruit to oatmeal. It's too cold for smoothies right now.

You could get a spit jar. You know, like with chewing tobacco, except with guava sees.

I think the spit jar would ruin my appetite!
