Feijoa is an aromatic fruit with a taste similar to pineapple, apples, and mint. It is roughly the size of a chicken egg.

Quality Check

Feijoas should smell slightly aromatic with a slight give when squeezed. The skin should not have bruising as that indicates they have been dropped. You may place them in the fridge to store them for up to 5 days.


The fruit should be cut in half and the pulp scooped out. The pulp is slightly seedy with a lot of juice. They are typically eaten out of hand but can be added to a smoothie. It is a popular ingredient in chutney.
