It's Feijoa season!
Autumn here in NZ is not just the time for fruits like apples, pears and kiwifruit - it's also the time for Feijoas. These are fairly expensive to buy in the supermarkets and shops but because my other half travels around for his job during the day he quite often finds them on the ground in public places and brings them home.
I like to have them in fruit salads or smoothies. What you do is you scoop out the inner white flesh and eat it. It's kind of sweet but not too sweet. Feijoas are originally from Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay and were bought here in the 1920s - now there are quite a few different varieties. They tend to grow well where we are, in the Bay of Plenty, Auckland and Northland.
