Tito gttnva (genus J'ohh'tun), n
native of tropical America iitul the
Wast India, wn- only introduced
here nud has now spread over ninny
parts of the islands, growing wi!d
and forming close thickets.
There are a number of varieties
growing and cultivated hete, but the
most common species is Hie P. Guu
ynvn, the variety which produces the
bulk of guava fruit used in com
merce in other countries. The two
varieties which nre the most valua
ble, are the P. GuaiiVa, Var. pii
feium, the white guava, with a pulp
of a light yellowish tinje and having
n sweet acid and somewhat aromatic
flavor, and the P. (luayava pouiife
rum, the red or pink gttavn consider
ed hot to be so finely flavored as the
Another variety is the P. Cattle
yanum, the so-called Chinese guava,
or better known as the strawberry
guava. The fruit is small and com
monly of a deep claret color with an
agreeable acid sweet flavor. Some
times the fruit is produced white or
of a delicate shade of yellow.
Gttavas arc easily raised from
layers or slips or from the seed. It
is a thrifty grower and prolilio bear
er, will fruit in eighteen month from
the seed and can be made lo produce
its fruit the year round. It is in full
bearing at from two to three years of
age. It is a bush, rather than a tree,
growing from twclvo to fifteen feet
high, though in a congenial locality
it will attain a height of twenty feet
and can bo trimmed to leseniblea
small tree. If planted about twelve
feet apart or about 200 to tho acre
and carcfuly cultivated they will
yield about a bushel of fruit ench
annually. They will withstand a
long drought lint respond generously
to good cultuie, fertilizing and mois
ture. The guava is not a9 yet cultivated
to any great extent in any of the
localities where it grows. The West
Indies manufacture some guava jelly
for export, but by no means adequate
to the demand, and it is an aiticle
scarcely known in the maskcls where
fruit jellies ate largely consumed.
The small quantities of guava jelly
that have been expoiled from these
islands either in tiade or as presents
lias been universally regarded as su
perior in flavor and quality to that of
any other kind of fruit jelly. Rut
the high United States taiil'f rendeis
its import into that country almost
prohibitive. Undoubtedly with a
free market in the United States
guava jelly would rapidly come into
favor and there would be a prolitable
market for all that these islands could
Florida is jtiht waking up to an ap
preciation of the proper commercial
value of the guava and many thou
sands of plants have been set out the
There appear to be three varieties
of the common guava growing in Flo
rida, one with a brigut pink flesh,
one yellow, and the third and favor
ite, white. Rut tliee are believed
to be the same variety, for -the seeds
do not come true and often change
the color of their fruit.
The "Cattley" or strawberry
guava P. CaUleianinii) has been
recently introduced in Florida and is
rapidly gaining in popular favor and
is considered to lie the most desirable
and useful of the guava tribe. It
attains a maximum growth of lo to
20 feet, of compact form, with dense,
glossy evei green foliage, which
makes it a very ornamental tree, es
pecially when loaded with its rich
colored fruit. It bears early, pro
ducing fruit at a year old from the
seed, and at two years will bear
nearly jive hundred guavas. The red
variety'is the most popular, the yel
low being rare in cultivation.
The guava is not a fruit that can
be shipped any distance, aud there
fore must be disposed of locally. In
iMoncia mere is considerable of a
local demand for the Ircsh ft uit which
sells at from one to two dollars a
bushel. Hut the most of the fruit is
made into jelly. A new indtiotiy
which has sprung up and promises to
extend into considerable proportions
is the evaporating of the guava fruit
for shipment. The method used has
proved successful and the fruit so
preserved is shipped away for use the
same as diied apples are", and large
quantities are sent in that way lo
cential factories to be made into jelly.
The evaporated guava is as sweet as
any other dried fruit.
The evaporating of fruits has here
tofore not been very successful but
Dr. Ryder's "American Fruit Drier,
or Pneumatic Evaporator," has cor
rected all the errors of the previous
methods aud successfully obtains the
required result, and with the intro
duction of this machine evaporated
fruits are rapidly coming inlo public
favor. Tho drying af guavas for.
home use aud for the northern mar
kets is destined to bp one of Florida's
great industries, for already the ar
ticle has become popular apd caused
an increasing demand for whiuh the
supply falls far short. Consumers
are beginning to discover thai evap
orated fruits are more wholesome and
cheaper than the canned "article.
Vegetables and fruits of many kinds
are now being preserved for future
use by thi3 new machine, almost every
small furmer owning and u-ing one of
the smaller sizes. The machines are
made by ihe "American Manulactur-
mg Company, of Waynesborough,
I'liiin.," in different sizes, from a No.
tl, which weighs 200 lbs., costs S2f
and will dry three bushels a day, up
to a size cabling 8150 and dryum one
hundred mid fifty bushels a day. The
guavas are pared, and the larger ones
sliced, the smaller ones halved, when
jilaced in the evaporator. The llavor
is perfectly preserved.
'i'liu mrWiiifrtUlitrc of mlnv1 Irilk-
is1 ft inpidly growing industry in
HOrida. Tho jelly is made by boil
ing down the fruit with just enough
water to keep it from burning. After
boiling for an hour or more till well
cooked, strain it through a rather
coatse bag, do not squeeze il nt all,
or if you do, strain it again through
a fine cloth, nieasuro the juice, let it
boil a few moments, then add granu
lated sugar, one and a half measures
to each one of juice, also the juice
of a lime or lemon to every four or
five quarts of juice. Skim off the
scum carefully, watch it closely, and
the moment it ropis or falls in large
drops, it is ready to be put in jars.
Jelly so made is beautifully clear
and will vary in color from a pule
amber to a light ohiet, according to
the vniiety ot liuit used. The pulp
remaining after the Juices ate drip
ped out, may lie passed through a
sieve thai will retain the seeds, foi
every pound of pulp add a pound of
granulated sugar and let il boll for
about 10 minutes, it is then a sweet
jam and may be potted. This jam
has never made its nppenrance in
commerce, for the reason that the
West India jelly is made of the pulp
and juice combined, and in Florida
as yet the pulp is only made into jam
by families as a mutter of economy.
Rut it is as fully equal to the other
fruit jams of comitii roe as is the
guava jelly lo other jellies, and if
made in quantity and plnced on the
markets it would undoubtedly bring
itself into notice anil demand.
The Polia (I'lnjitilis Peruviana)
is a perennial spreading bush, a native
of Rrazil, naturalized here and in
many warm countries, commonly
known as "Cape Gooseberry." it
is common on our moiiulniii" slopes
and in clearings el woods particu
larly on Maui anil Hawaii between
1A00 and 1000 fee elevation. The
edible berry is of pleasant flavor and
makes an excellent jelly. A small
amount of this jelly is made in Kona
and on Molokai for sale in Honolulu.
It is a delicious novelty and would
undoubtedly become popular in the
jelly markets. It grows luxuriantly
here in the shelter of our upland
forests and valleys and could be
easily cultivated under the shelter of
some other crop where there is
abundant moisture even down to the
"I have just recovered Irom a sec
ond attack of the grip this year,"
says Mr. Jas. O. Jones, publisher of

latter case I used Chamberlain's
Counh Remedy, and 1 think with
considerable success, only being in

ten days for the first attack. The
Second attack I am satisfied would
have been equally as bad as the first
