What is this? Feijoa!

The Feijoa, also known as Pineapple Guava or Guavasteen, is an evergreen small tree.  It can grow in Melbourne.  I know it because I got three of them in my yard.

The fruit matures in autumn and is green, and about the size and shape of an egg. It has a sweet, aromatic flavour. The flesh is juicy and have a distinctive smell.

The fruit is usually eaten by cutting it in half, then scooping out the pulp with a spoon.
