Last Updated: 25th May, 2020
- Check if the fruit is ripe. To do so, try squeezing the feijoa softly.
- Using a knife, cut the feijoa in half, lengthwise. The pulp inside the fruit should look clear and gelatinous.
- Use a teaspoon to scoop out the flesh. You may eat it using a spoon.

Also asked, can you eat the skin of a Feijoa?
Feijoas skin and all. Some cultivars of feijoa may be theoretically perfect fruits, in the sense that every part is edible. Most people assume that feijoas must be peeled; and in fact, in fruits grown from seed, the skin is usually too sour to eat with pleasure.
Also Know, what does feijoa fruit taste like? A feijoa contains a sweet, cream colored pulp which has a unique, aromatic flavor. It could be described as a cross between a pear, pineapple and guava. The texture close to the skin is somewhat grainy although not unpleasant. Towards the center of the fruit the texture transforms into a softer jelly-like consistency.
In this manner, how do you know when a feijoa is ripe?
When buying feijoas, look for fruit that feel firm. Feijoas can bruise easily even though they feel hard, so handle them gently, as you would a ripe peach. Once you've opened a feijoa, you can see it's ripe when the jelly-like centre is clear; the flesh nearer the skin remains more opaque.
Are guavas and Feijoas the same?
The Feijoa, or 'pineapple guava', is a small sweet green fruit with a flavour unlike any other. Although the plant is often referred to as pineapple guava it is in fact not actually a guava, however it is still in the same family.
