|I'm afraid the sweetness of guava fruits is mostly genetic; some guava fruit are naturally sweet, some are tart. Guavas will not ripen after they are harvested and need to remain on the tree until they are fully ripe. If you're harvesting them too soon, they may not be as sweet as possible. Pink or red guava are generally picked when the peel turns light green to yellow. Fruit are then placed a room temperature and allowed to soften before eating.
