Feijoa (Feijoa sellowiana)

also known as pineapple guava or guavasteen is an evergreen shrub or small tree, 1–7 metres in height, originating from the highlands of southern Brazil and parts of

Colombia, Uruguay and northern Argentina. It is also widely cultivated as a garden plant and fruiting tree in New Zealand. The fruit, maturing in autumn, is green and about the size of a chicken's egg. It has a sweet aromatic flavor. The flesh is juicy and is divided into a clear jelly-like seed pulp and a firmer, slightly gritty, opaque flesh nearer the skin.
