Feijoa is a grey-green multi-stemmed evergreen shrub or small tree. It can grow up to 3-6 metres tall. The plants can
be pruned to form a hedge or a small tree. The plant can withstand several degrees below freezing. The stiff shiny green leaves are lighter underneath and very showy flowers are produced from April to June. They have long, scarlet stamens topped with large grains of yellow pollen. The fresh fruit is widely consumed because of its characteristic flavour and aroma, which are similar to a pineapple.
