Feijoa - A waxy green fruit about 3" long. Although it is not a guava you may know it as a Pineapple Guava. Feijoa sellowiana is an evergreen shrub, growing to 10-16 ft. It thrives in subtropical regions but is hardy & once established will tolerate moderate frosts. They are either eaten raw (with or without the skin) or made into jellies, sauces & chutneys.


  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup wholemeal flour
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 cup chopped feijoas


Preheat oven to 180oC (350oF), prepare pans. Mix together the flour, ginger, baking powder & soda & sugar. Rub in the butter until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Combine the liquid ingredients, add the dry mix and feijoas until just combined. Spoon into pans & bake for 15 mins. A small slice of crystallised ginger may be placed on top of each muffin before baking if desired.
