Feijoa

The feijoa is a smallish, evergreen tree that hails from Brazil. It produces stacks of beautiful pink flowers in spring, which are followed by pendulous, egg-sized green fruit in late autumn – which drop to the ground when ripe. Feijoas will grow in sub-tropical to cool temperate climates, though for the fruit to set properly, a minimum of 50 chill hours is considered necessary for most cultivars. Like many other kinds of fruit trees, feijoas can be grown from seed. They like regular water and nutrients, but don’t need special attention. They will also tolerate a range of soil types and should begin to fruit somewhere between 2-6 years of age.
