Feijoa

The feijoa, also known as the pineapple guava and the guavasteen, is a green, oval shaped fruit with a creamy colored, sweet, juicy, seeded flesh.  The odor is incredible -- strong and tropical.  The seeds of the feijoa are also edible

 

 

When in season: 
early-spring
spring
late-spring
early-summer
summer
winter
late-winter
How to select: 

Since feijoas do not ripen further once harvested, be certain the ones you are selecting are already ripe.  The skin should be firm, but give slightly to the touch.  If the skin gives too much it is likely to be overripe.  The skin can be either smooth or slightly bumpy.

How to eat: 

Slice the fruit in half, scoop out the flesh and seeds with a spoon and eat.
