It is called guavaberry, mirto or murta in Puerto Rico; Guavaberry in Saint-Martin and Saint-Eustache; guaveberry guayabillo in Guatemala; coconut-carette, cherry-cherry, in Guadeloupe and Martinique Produced before from aged rum, it is now made from white rhum, brown sugar, wild guavaberries that grow in the hills in the centre of the island and spices.
