Feijoa

I’d never heard of Feijoas (Pineapple Guava) until I stayed in New Zealand as an exchange student many years ago. My host family lived on a ten acre property and had a magnificent Feijoa hedge/wind-break on one side of the house. It yielded buckets over several weeks and I ate hundreds of the unique-tasting fruit raw and learnt to cook many new recipes using them. I have two growing in our yard and although they  have a long way to go to reach the height of the NZ hedge, they’ve survived a couple dry summers and I’m sure we’ll be eating Feijoas before long 🙂
