Feijoas

This autumn fruit named after Portuguese botanist João da Silva Feijó goes by many names: feijoa, pineapple guava, guavasteen, and many more. About the size of an egg, feijoas grow in tropical climates and contain lots of fiber and folates, perfect for pregnant mothers. Feijoas also help with immunity and wound healing thanks to their vitamin C content and are known for helping to balance the body's pH level.

Selection Process

Feijoas do not travel well and are prone to bruising. They are said to taste the best the day they fall from their tree, at which point they have reached optimum ripeness. When purchasing, feijoa fruits should be fragrant and give slightly when squeezed gently.
