Tanzania guavas (Psidium guajava) are fruits from sub-tropical regions that thrive best under high humidity and dry conditions. It is prone to chilling injury and thus fares poorly under cool environments. The tree is quite productive and can bear once or twice yearly. A single tree can have an average output of roughly 37 kilograms worth of fruits each year. In appearance, the tree is diminutive in size but bears large fruits. It comes from the same family as myrtle. Its origin is Mexico as well as the rest of Latin America.
In terms of nutritional benefits, this is one of the highest sources of vitamin C for immunity at 380 percent of the daily value. Each serving of guava supplies the body with 11 percent of potassium which controls blood pressure. The vitamin A content stands at 12 percent, itself a remedy for strong eyesight. Its dietary fiber level is 20 percent which is sufficient for promoting digestion. It has equal levels of vitamin B-6 and magnesium. At 5 percent of the daily value, these two nutrients enhance metabolism and promote bone formation, respectively.
We source Tanzania guava from Rorya district in the north-western tip of the country. Here, our family growers own an average of 0.5 hectares of land where they grow bananas, guavas and other tropical fruits. They keep their land free of chemical contamination by diligent use of recommended pesticides. They also enrich their soil with the use of farmyard compost instead of commercial fertilizers. They farm the crops under cooperative societies for export certification reasons.
We harvest Tanzania guava when it turns from a green to a yellow color. This applies to the red-or pink-tinted varieties. By now the fruit usually emits a strong fragrance that indicates it is mature even if not yet ripe. We use pruners to cut the large fruit from the stem and retain a few inches of the stalk on it. We immediately deliver them to the washing shed where we spray an edible wax on them to prevent premature ripening.
We pack Tanzania guava in packages of about 4.5 kilograms. The cartons come in horizontal design to provide easy handling and the insertion of wax sleeves that wrap each fruit. If applying wax sleeves, we carefully choose the type of wax to avoid blackening that some types cause. Alternatively, we put the fruits into polyethylene-lined bags before final placement into the cartons. This precaution is a way to reduce on-board ripening or the fluffy arrival of the cargo. We finish the packing process with labeling. Our labels contain the name of the produce, the county of origin, the date of packing and the net weight.
We store Tanzania guavas at 7 to 10 degrees Celsius free of any contamination and under a relative humidity of 80 to 95 %. We perpetuate this control temperature during the journey to the Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar-es-Salaam via our special refrigerated vans. This expeditious conveyance ensures the package will be at your destination a day or two from the date of dispatch.
