FEIJOA, PINEAPPLE GUAVA, ( Ổi Khóm )-
Feijoa sellowiana
Native to southern Brazil, northern Argentina, western Paraguay and Uruguay . Feijoa is an evergreen shrub that can be pruned to any size. In addition to the fruit it provides, the shrub also doubles handsomely as a landscape specimen. Feijoas can also be espaliered or trained as a small tree (20 to 25 ft. tall) with one or more trunks.
The  showy flowers have long, bright red stamens topped with large grains of yellow pollen. The petals are mildly sweet and edible and can make a refreshing addition to spring salads.
The fruits , up to 3-4 inches long, round to elongated pear shape, blue-green waxy, emits a strong long-lasting perfume, even before it is fully ripe. The thick, white, juicy flesh and the pulp enclosing the seeds are sweet or subacid, suggesting a combination of pineapple and guava or pineapple and strawberry, often with overtones of winter green or spearmint.
