This arrived yesterday from Feijoa Direct, the business in Nambugga, NSW, who send feijoas to your door. I mentioned them the other day and they’ve been true to their word every step of the way.

I just had to snap these little beauties in their packaging – just too wonderful. They are better than the ones I purchased last year from the local greengrocers (imports, they were) – these are bigger and the first one tasted exactly as it should. I am fending off my child who loves them too.

Sadly for my ambitions to make some of these recipes, you do need a whole tree to really get cooking… because the desire to have them fresh and at their fullest flavour is so overwhelming.
