FEIJOA – Acca sellowiana

A smaller growing bushy TREE it is one of the hardiest of the subtropical fruits, growing in most soils and tolerating several degrees of frost. Feijoas are commonly available as seedlings, but plants grown from cuttings or grafted specimens are more reliable. Attractive red and white FLOWERS also attract birds and are edible as well. FRUIT ripens between April and May and when mature will fall off the tree at a touch. The skin is green and ranges from smooth to rough and dimpled.  The pulp is sweet and juicy with a good flavour. Generally require another to cross pollinate although “Unique” is unique in that it doesn’t!  They respond well to trimming if they become a little tall or woody and can also be used as a hardy hedge.   APX: 4.0m – HARVEST: March-May
