Guayabas (guavas) are plentiful in Costa Rica from September through November. Their pink fruit is used for jam or guava paste. You can see the trees every where and if you see them on a public zone like a street you can go right ahead and pick some, in costa rica the law says that even if the tree grows in someone's property but the branches and fruits on them are hanging behind the property line it belongs to the public.



Cas is a little round fruit similar to the guayaba whose tart tropical flavor is popular in refrescos and sherbets. Try the nieve de cas at Pop's.
