In some countries it is known as 'Pineapple Guava'.

Love them or hate them? I like them cooked but am not wild about them raw. However, yesterday D and I made some apple and feijoa juice using the Reinette du Canada apples from the orchard with a smaller amount of feijoa fruit. And the verdict? - delicious!

I also made this feijoa and coconut cake which is a lovely way to enjoy the fruit, using a this great recipe. From browsing the net I see that some people have made this cake and successfully frozen it, so I think I should make a couple more to put in the freezer for later. By the way, this recipe does make a substantial sized cake!
