The brazilians are big on fruit slurries to flavour desserts,smoothies,icecream or to blend with other juices etc.Many of the Psidiums are used this way.I off-loaded most species I had including P.eugenifolia and P.myrtifolia as I would rather plant their soft seeded relatives, Campomanesia and Single seeded Eugenias.

Guava Pear. Sounds like a good one.
Here is the translation of the ejardim page:

Psidium acutangulum / guava-pear

Fruit globose or pyriform 6-8 cm in diameter, weighing up to 240 g. The seeds are large, much larger than those of guava (Psidium guajava) or fewer therefore easier to be extracted. Flesh juicy and fleshy, acid flavor.

Uses: Eaten mostly in the form of delicious juices, creams and sorbets, which refer to the taste of European pear (Pyrus communis). It is a small tree 3-7 m tall, with new branches quadrangulados and bright green foliage. The corrugated sheets are printed and the banks, lending a stylish look to the plant. Can be successfully employed in landscaping small spaces.

Cultivation: It adapts well to any type of soil. Production starts between three and four years.

Source: Distributed throughout the Amazon, the Guianas and the Orinoco River Basin.

Family: Myrtaceae.

Remarks: The frozen pulp hit with yogurt and sweetened to taste results in one of the best recipes from "frozen yogurt". See the delicious formula in our blog http://e-jardim.blogspot.com)

Picked up a nice ripe Araca pera , a sour guava [ Psidium acutangulum ] . So trying it in a banana bread recipe ,, lots of red daccas , vanilla and for the first time in years some added sugar [ only have it for ginger beer] licked the bowl and it tasted awesome . added pecans & pumpkin seeds . Will be served up for morning tea at our Rare Fruit pruning field day this weekend.
