Goiabada is a popular dessert throughout the Portuguese-speaking countries of the world, dating back to the colonial days in Brazil, where guavas were used as a substitute for the quinces used to make marmelada. An abundance of sugar and slave labour were crucial for its confection, in large cauldrons cooking over a slow fire. It is a conserve made of guava, sugar and water. It is still commonly made at home for family use or by home industry outlets (traditional recipes) or as processed food.

The Big Guava is a nickname for Tampa, Florida, USA. It was coined in the 1970s by Steve Otto, long-time newspaper columnist for the Tampa Tribune and the (defunct) Tampa Times. The Tampa Bay area is not a source of commercially-grown guava, as occasional freezes make it difficult for the tropical trees to mature and become productive.
