The fruit is ready to be harvested when they have fallen to the ground. A ripe feijoa will be soft but not squishy. They will ripen a little bit off the tree so if a fallen fruit is still hard, pop them in a fruit bowl and give them a few days to finish ripening
To eat a feijoa, just cut it in half horizontally and scoop out the jelly flesh as you would a kiwifruit.
Feijoas taste like taking the best elements of strawberry, guava and pineapple and mixing them together. They smell pleasantly sweet and flowery.
