Feijoa, scientifically known as Acca Sellowiana, is a fascinating evergreen shrub or small tree that is cherished not only for its delicious and aromatic fruit but also for its ornamental value. Native to South America, particularly Brazil and Uruguay, this plant is commonly referred to as Feijoa, Pineapple Guava, or Guavasteen.

The most notable feature of the Feijoa plant is its unique, egg-shaped fruit, which has green, slightly rough skin and sweet, granular, jelly-like flesh with a flavour reminiscent of a blend between pineapple and guava. The fruit is not only a delectable treat but also a good source of essential vitamins and minerals. It is rich in vitamin C, dietary fibre, and antioxidants, making it a healthy addition to your diet.

In addition to its culinary appeal, Feijoa plants are appreciated for their attractive and evergreen foliage. The leaves are leathery, elliptical, and glossy, with silvery undersides, providing a striking contrast in the garden. These plants produce lovely, showy flowers with striking red stamens and pinkish-white petals, adding to their ornamental value. Feijoa is relatively low-maintenance and adaptable, thriving in a variety of soil types and climates. Its versatility, both as a fruitful and visually pleasing addition to your garden, makes it a favourite among horticulturists and fruit enthusiasts alike.
