Feijoa Season here in New Zealand


Recommended Posts

Yay! It's time for my favourite fruit season ... we have two HUGE feijoa trees that are just starting to drop fruit.

 

I'll have enough to feed the congregation!

 

If you don't know what a Feijoa is let me take you on this culinary journey.

 

A Feijoa is a native of South America ... and grows Very well in New Zealand. It is also known in some parts of the world as the Pineapple Guava. So if you have ever eaten a guava then you'd probably understand the texture.

 

The fruit are oval green fruit - looking a little like green Tamarilloes ...vary from very small = mouthful size to quite large pear size. I eat the skin, but many don't. The skin is sour sometimes a little bitter which I think compliments the fruit inside. The outer flesh is pear like in texture and a little sour but in the middle looks like mashed banana and is very sweet and perfumed - if you have ever eaten a lychee you will understand what I mean by perfumed.  Some say it's an acquired taste - but I think most like them than don't.

 

New Zealand makes a lovely Feijoa Wine, they can also be made into jams and preserves. Used in cakes and crumbles. Feijoa freshly squeezed juice is quite a demand.

 

Health benefits: 

The feijoa fruit is rich in a number of minerals and vitamins. A cup ofFeijoa fruit contains adequate calories, calcium, copper, natural fats, iron, protein, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, zinc and Vitamin C. Therefore, this fruit is high on nutritivecontent.

 

Also know to boost brain and memory function and helps your immunity against colds and flu.

 

Below are some pictures of feijoa - and below are feijoa sweets/lollies we buy here - they are quite sour.
