Feijoa (Acca sellowiana), also known as the pineapple guava, is a species of flowering plant in the myrtle family, Myrtaceae. It is native to South America, specifically in the areas of Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, and Colombia. It is a warm-temperate to subtropical plant but it can also grow in the tropics. The fruit is green when ripe and is nicknamed the pineapple guava thanks to its unique combined tones of both pineapple and white guava.
The fruit is native in South America but it was introduced in Europe in late 19th century and in California in early 20th century. Later it was also introduced in Australia and in New Zealand.
Apart from South America, feijoa is cultured in Australia, New Zealand, Iran, Azerbaijan, Russia, and Georgia.
Flavours & Texture
The fruit has a sweet and aromatic flavour, which tastes like pineapple and guava with a subtle apple after taste. Its flesh is juicy and is divided into a clear, gelatinous seed pulp and a firmer, slightly granular, opaque flesh nearer the skin. Its texture is gritty and it resembles the texture of guava. Like many fruits, they can vary in size depending on the specie and growing conditions and can weigh from 70-180grams
In order to eat a feijoa cut it in half and scoop out the inside creamy white flesh. You can eat it raw, make a jam, and use it in deserts or even in smoothies.
Feijoa is very low in calories but high in fibre and vitamin C.
