Evergreen leaves are alternate, simple, oval to elliptical shaped, 1 - 2" long, dark green upper surface, white lower surface. The white undersides and stems make the plant look blue green from a distance.
Flowers appear in early spring, usually singly, with four fleshy petals that are white on the outside and pink on the inside, about 3/4". The red showy bits are long bright red stamens. Flowers are edible.
The edible fruit (a berry) is oval shaped, bluish green, 2" long, with a whitish fleshy pulp. Strongly fragrant and very tasty. Strawberry to pineapple flavors.
Trees can produce huge amounts of fruit, and many times most of it ends up on the ground.
For those using the plant for fruit production there are lots of cultivated varieties available. Can't say I have ever noticed the cultivars being sold in local nurseries.
Feijoa is the old name.
