I have a guava tree and I don't know what to do with it!

Hi all! I've recently tried my hand at gardening and it's been extremely fun! I've got a nice little herb garden and various vegetables that are doing well. There is also a pretty good size fruit tree in my yard that a friend identified as a guava tree. The fruits are tiny and when we tried them, they were kind of tasteless and sour and hard. I've never eaten fresh guava, but I LOVE guava jam and was hoping to make some if I can "fix" this tree.

Is it just because no one has taken care of this tree in a while that the fruit isn't very tasty? What do I need to do to ensure a nice harvest whenever that time is? I've cut away a lot of low branches that were getting in the way, so I hope that will help.... Seriously, I'm really inexperienced. Any tips?
