Feijoa Fruit

Sometimes called the pineapple guava the feijoa, although in the same family is not a guava. Becoming increasingly popular as a commercial crop, the fruit has the taste and aroma of strawberry, pineapple, lemon, passionfruit and guava. The tiny edible seeds are embedded in a jellylike center. The spectacular purple, pink and white flowers have sweet delicious petals that make a superb ingredient in sweets and drinks.
Trees are very attractive and can be planted to form beautiful flowering and fruiting hedges, screens or windbreaks.  They espalier well and can be trained as a small standard tree or a multi-trunked specimen.  They are well suited to pot culture and even seedling trees will produce flowers and fruits after as little as three years.

All feijoas truly despise wind when young. My young tree is now quite slow-growing after those harsh winds.

I have plenty of fruit with only one Feijoa tree and none nearby, so I'm not sure about the comment of needing more than one for pollination.

If growning in South Australia improve your soil you intend to grow it in as this helps to get good root grown hence healthier plant, give an annual feed of fertiliser,keep up the water over summer and you will enjoy a good crop in late March to mid April

Feijoas are excellent preserved. Make up a sugar syrup like standard preserving and mmm yummo. Makes the flavour of the feijoa stronger and delicious.

When we lived in Auckland we had a feijoa hedge and masses of fruit. We used to make feijoa wine. It is to die for but quite potent, so watch out.

To have the fruit all year round: Scoop out pulp and mix in blender with half the amount of sugar as pulp and freeze in air tight containers. Lasts for years. Bon apetit

Easy grown but has issues with Fruit Flies so need care to collect all dropped fruit and use fruit fly baits or trap.
