Guava Sale

image

A fruit that was once so abundant. If you visited an ukambani home 10~20years ago in August, you were directed to a guava tree to eat as much as you want then carry as much as you can. However the last 4 years I’ve only seen 1(one) guava tree and can count on one hand the number of times I’ve seen guava fruit in ukambani. Is guava, also known as mapera on it’s way to becoming extinct in ukambani? Anyone ever tasted guava drink?
