Hey - don't judge us on our looks
It's what's on the inside that counts!
Feijoas are well-known for their high levels of Vitamin C, antioxidants and minerals. The presence of folates and iodine suggests feijoas are one of the best fruits to eat during pregnancy plus it's estimated you'll obtain a quarter of your daily fibre needs from one feijoa. Being one of the most alkaline foods available makes this fruit helpful in balancing the ph of the body. A favourite for using in natural skin care and teas because of their healing properties, feijoas are also a plentiful source of potassium, crucial for regulating blood pressure. Like all dried fruits they're not the prettiest but like we said, it's what's on the inside that counts.
The feijoa (pronounced FEE-jo-ah in New Zealand) is one of our countries best kept secrets. It’s a deliciously sweet, aromatic fruit that flourishes in our unique climate. Their distinctive and complex flavour cannot be compared to any other food and they are delightfully addictive. As New Zealanders we are lucky to have grown up with feijoa trees in our back yards but we know most of the world has never heard of or even tasted this special fruit... until now!
Back in 2010 the Wastney family started drying feijoas from their family orchard in Nelson, looking to send this treasure to friends and family abroad who longed for a taste of home. We had such positive feedback from feijoa lovers that we've decided to make these Little Beauties available to everybody who shares our love for this New Zealand icon or those intrigued to discover it.
