A Special Feijoa Gift
The humble feijoa holds a special spot in my heart. I love their pleasantly gritty inside texture and a spicy, intoxicating aromatic taste. We have two trees at my family home back in New Zealand and for me a trip there in feijoa season is heaven. I eat as many of them as possible during their precious season in the crisp days of Autumn.
This year, far from the family feijoa tree, a surprise turned up on my desk - A beautiful feijoa, delivered secretly to my desk by a knowing soul with Kiwi links. What a delight.
Here it is - First photographed, then eaten with devout reverence, it was undoubtedly a well loved little fruit.
Thank you feijoa angel.
