FEIJOAS, indigenous to Brazil and Uruguary, are a popular fruit to grow in New Zealand for a late autumn harvest.

Feijoas: Origins Cultivation & UsesThis book brings together the cumulative knowledge of scientists at HortResearch, who are at the forefront of research and development of new feijoa varieties.

Cultivars and their identification, pollination, pruning and training, disease and pest control, harvest maturity, post-harvest handling and even processing are discussed in depth.

Feijoas: Origins Cultivation & UsesAn essential guide for growers, Feijoas would also be extremely useful for nurserymen, students, researchers and horticulturists. Feijoas is nicely illustrated and contains some handy hints for using the fresh fruit in the kitchen too.
