In this study, we determined the complete plastome sequence of Psidium guajava L. (Myrtaceae) (NCBI acc. no. KX364403). The gene order and structure of the P. guajava plastome are similar to those of a typical angiosperm. The complete plastome is 158,841 bp in length, and consists of a large single copy of 87,675 bp and a small single copy of 18,464 bp, separated by two inverted repeats of 26,351 bp. The overall AT content of the sequence is 63.0%. The plastome contains 112 genes, of which 78 are protein-coding genes, 30 are tRNA genes, and four are rRNA genes. Sixteen genes contain one intron and two genes have two introns. A total of 100 simple sequence loci were identified from the genome. Phylogenetic analysis revealed that P. guajava is a sister group of Eugenia uniflora with 100% bootstrap support.
