It's time to pick up and start eating feijoas.
Well around here it is anyway. You either like or hate them.
( They have varied and intriguing patterns inside )
That bowl full was yesterday collection. So they don't remain on the ground too long ( especially if you have birds that like them ) I need to pick up every 2nd day. Our few trees have a good crop so we will have plenty to share with family.
They can be cooked but only if you have a real over supply. Best eaten just cut in half and scooped out with a spoon.
Other countries where they call them different names ( pineapple Guavas - Australia ) they don't seem as popular or to do so well as here. We are lucky in Northern NZ.
I will eat my share and maybe more.
Heavy rain forced me to pick these dahlias up out of the dirt and rinse the blooms clean. They have recovered now and look vibrant on the kitchen bench.
