Blueish green oblong fruit with a pebbly surface
Lovely, strong, sweet scent with a unique spearmint note
Medium juice, crystallized texture, soft flesh
Sweet and delicious with an herbal grassy spearmint flavor that is very unusual and enticing
OVERALL Overall Rating:
This is certainly a unique fruit. Strikes me as something that is talked about more than eaten and might win the “most likely to still be on the fruit platter at the end of the party” award.
Updated 11/03: I tried this one again at a California Rare Fruit Growers meeting and oh am I glad I did! It was amazing. I went back for thirds and fourths (it was free!). I don’t know if the other one I tried was overripe or just not that good, but please, please if you see this at a party don’t let even one piece linger on that platter — also please invite me to cool parties that serve Feijoas. Thanks.
