A few questions have come in about the size of the UK grown fruit. As many people have found you can occasionally come across small imported fruits to buy in stores such as Harrods, Sainsburys and Tesco that have been picked before they’re ripe to send to the UK. These can taste OK, but are never as nice as fruit that have dropped from a tree when ripe.
Although not as big as the mammoth ones grown in NZ of 100 to 200 grams most of the UK grown feijoa fruit are around the 50 grams region. Each year the fruit has been getting bigger.
A couple of photos from the 2019 feijoa crop weighing in at 57 and 64 grams:
Sorry about the quality of the photos, very hard not to get reflections in the window of the scales.
