Hello Jean-Jacques,
Enjoyed strolling along with you as usual. Do you eat the strawberry guavas like a fruit or are there other culinary uses? Is the Hedychium flavescens rhizomes edible?
Looking forward to discovering more of Reunion natural wonders.

Hi Norma,
I prefer the strawberry guavas fresh but they can be turned into jellies, preserves, puree or processed into drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic (the nectar made with them is just yum-yum! I do not think those rhizomes are edible otherwise people would have found out, they are not toxic either though.
