Psidium cattleianum, named in honour of notable English horticulturist Sir William Cattley, commonly known as Cattley guava or Peruvian guava, is a small tree (2–6 m tall), bearing small red or yellow fruit, which are somewhat sour but sometimes eaten or made into jam. 

The red-fruited variety is known as strawberry guava. 

The fruit can be eaten by cutting them in half and scooping out the pulp and seeds or by biting off a piece of the rind and sucking out the insides. 

Strawberry guavas taste like a passionfruit mixed with strawberry. 

The seeds are small and white in colour and can be roasted as a substitute for coffee. 

Its leaves may be brewed for tea. 
The skin is also edible and tastes a bit like rose petals but is best removed for a sweeter flavour. (Wikipedia)
