GUAVA (Psidium guajava)

Since the middle of the 20th century the cultivation of guava was extended to Jordan and currently is planted in about 350 Ha with a country production of about 2,900 tons. Great part of the production is concentrated in Irbid Governorate. The Jordanian Guava production is sold in the local market as fruit and not as processed. Guava juice is imported in Jordan from neighbor countries.
