These sub tropical shrubs actually hail from Brazil and are named after Don da Silva Feijoa a 19th century Brazilian botanist. Due to their popularity in New Zealand we tend to think of them as something uniquely Kiwi. Feijoas are exceptionally easy to grow and very tolerant. However given ideal conditions the fruit will have a better flavour and you will get a more bountiful crop of deliciously fragrant beauties.  

Give Feijoas a sunny position in well drained fertile soil. If there is a dry spell of weather when the fruit is developing, make sure you water well. Feijoas don't like heavy frost due to their sub tropical heritage but once established they become surprisingly tolerant. Feijoas will grow near the coast and will tolerate quite a lot of wind especially if grown closely together in a hedge. Some of the new cultivars such as "Marion" tend to be more frost hardy. No need to prune unless you require a particular shape however the removal of some branches allowing good light penetration will assist with fruit development.

aka Pineapple Guava

A must-have Feijoa as, not only is it frost hardy, but it is self fertile as well. Mind you, it will no doubt produce better if planted with some company. Smooth skinned fruit with a mild flavour. Quite vigorous and eventually forms a large shrub. Evergreen.

Though Feijoas are tough and tolerant it is important that they do not suffer drought when the fruit is developing. You will know your Feijoas are ready for eating when they start dropping to the ground.
