I am not really adventurous when it comes to trying different fruits so I'm pretty sure I would never have tried a feijoa--at least, not in Kansas. But here in NZ is a different story. All it took was for two kids and one adult to get excited about a sign on the side of the road for me to anticipate a new fruit for my taste buds. The anticipation in their voices along with animated faces and arms is all it took. I am so hooked on these wondrous little beauties. Click here for a very brief history of them. And then, next fall, try some! You just cut them open (I just cut the tops off) and dig the ugly but scrumptious taste out with a spoon.
