I'm not the only guava lover

I forgot to pick the almost ripe guavas this weekend. The next morning, all that was left were the shells. You got to admire the raccoons - they really know the good stuff.

Now, I inspect the guavas daily, I can now tell just by looking at them which ones are ready for the picking. To confirm, I gently squeeze them, when green, they are rock hard, when ready for picking, they give way ever so slightly, then take one to two days to ripen. Once they give off the classic guava aroma, they're ready to eat, but eat them before they turn too soft and mushy.
