Just have a look at my harvest of feijoa!
And the trees are still groaning with fruit:
The two trees shown above are about seven years old, but this year is the first time we’ve had a crop. And it’s all due to mushroom compost! I fed the two trees in early spring, and I’ve watered them over most of the summer and it’s insane how much fruit they’ve given back.
The Offspring and I have been eating them for two weeks now, and I’ve given bagfuls to the neighbours, but I think I’ll have to put some out by the front gate tomorrow with a sign that reads – FREE to a good stomach.
p.s. some of you may know the feijoa as the pineapple guava. 🙂
p.p.s. and this is what they look like on the inside [you scoop them out with a spoon]:
