Mmmm, feijoa season – we look forward to it every year! When the trees are practically raining down these green gems, it’s time to get creative and find some new and exciting ways to get the best out of them. They’re a great lunch-box snack just as they are – packed with vitamin C, potassium, fibre and even calcium – but try our ideas to get the kids into the kitchen to help turn feijoas into something a little more magical.

Many thanks to our models Georgia, Jessica, Kyra and Kassiah.

Top tips:

  • Feijoas are at their best when the jellied sections inside are clear. If they’re brown or grey, the fruit is over-ripe.

  • When choosing feijoas, look for firm fruit with unblemished skin. To keep them fresh, store in the fridge at 4°C.
