New Zealand is set for a bumper Feijoa crop in 2020.

The drought conditions which have hit many regions have actually helped in producing more of the delicious green fruit.

Feijoas are just coming into season. They will in April and remain in huge supply until the end of June. 

Growers have said that this year’s crop is approximately 20% higher than last year. It is expected that around 1500 tonnes will be harvested this season.

Feijoas are really high in vitamin C. During autumn and winter it is more important than ever to consume plenty of fresh fruit to boost our immune systems and fight off any coughs, colds or bugs.

  1. Overall I love Feijoas so I am not complaing. Its also great because it might help companies get back what they lost during isolation.

  2. My neighbours gave us a quarter of their feijoas in a bag and the bag was full. So I counted them up and there was 40 feijoas!
