Guavas are plants in the Myrtle family (Myrtaceae) genus Psidium   which contains about 100species of tropical shrubs and small trees.

Guava is also called Amrood (  ‘امرود’) in North India and Pakistan, which is possibly a variant of Armoot meaning “pear” in Arabic and Turkish languages, and possibly linked to the Moghul occupation of this region.
