DIRECTIONS:

1. Optional - peel the skin off the guava.
2. Scoop out the guavas' seed centers and discard if you want.* For a chunky salsa, chop the guava into small pieces. For a salsa with a finer texture, place the guava in a food processor and pulse until the desired size is achieved. Put pieces in a medium-size bowl.
3. Cut a Solo papaya in half, scoop out the seeds and scoop out the meat of the fruit. Chop or process the papaya into the desired size for the salsa. Add pieces to the bowl.
4. Chop or process the fresh scallion. Add to the bowl along with the juice of the 3 limes, sugar and pepper. Toss to coat.
5. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Toss before serving.
