Feijoa time!

I only notice it's feijoa season when I see them on the lawn - as the feijoas ripen, they just fall off!
This year I'm going to try freezing the pulp, just scooped out with a spoon and sealed in a container, as they'll be great in muffins and other cookery later in the year.  I'll also see if the defrosted pulp is suitable to pop into muesli for breakfast!
They're delicious, with their own unique flavour!

I've got two trees, apparently necessary for pollination, but strangely only one produces fruit.  As they are fairly prolific, that's not a worry!
They produce lovely spiky red blossom, and are grown commercially in New Zealand.  For more detail check out this feijoa website.
