Can Guinea Pigs Eat Mexican Guava?

Mexican guava, also known as Mexican cream guava, is just one of several guava varieties. Guinea pigs can eat guava, although it doesn't appear on our favorite food chart, so we're going to recommend no more than once a week to be safe. Some people like to scrape off the seeds first, although the white varieties like Mexican cream guava tend to have softer seeds, so it's probably not necessary.

This is a Mexican cream guava.
It's pretty good...
No complaints so far, I guess...

While we were eating, one of the humans coughed, which sent us scrambling in all directions. Lola eventually went back to the plate of guava first, while Buffy and I just ate hay. The humans had to move the plate closer to remind us that we had a new food to try. We then ate most of it, but left a chunk. It's not bad, but it's not our favorite, either. We'll give Mexican guava 3.5/5 stars.

  1. Why isn't guava on the recommended food list? It has highest vit C content of all fruits, twice as much vitamin C as red Bell peppers
