3. Pink Guava
Pink guava is a type of guava that is easy to grow, gives fruit quickly and is not picky regarding soil type. If being well-cared, guava gives fruit all year round and brings high yield. Besides, farmers will certainly not need to worry about output because pink guava is consumed very quickly. In particular, pink guava is juicy with pink core, few seeds and very delicious and sweet taste. Pink guava can yield over 15 tons/ha/year, with profit many times higher than in rice cultivation (according to Vietnam Agriculture Newspaper).
Pink guava cocktail conquers every customer’s taste
Pink guava is often used in the preparation of drinks, from smoothies, juices to sodas, crushed ice, tea; even mocktails or cocktails can be combined with pink guava. People love the taste of pink guava not only for its unique taste – when mixed, pink guava also gives a very beautiful and gentle pink color, making people feel relaxed and cherished every time they taste that aromatic flavor.
In the future, pink guava will continue to maintain its “heat” and rise to the top of Vietnamese agricultural product market, not only in terms of profit but also in terms of diversity in application and creation.
