Festival de la Feijoa

Feijoa Festival in Rancho Tehama, California

The First Annual Rancho Tehama Festival de la Feijoa took place this last week. The week long festival included harvest, processing, food and drink creation, singing and dancing. Feijoa ice cream, feijoa-fizz drinks, feijoa and lime muffins, feijoa paste, feijoa-pomegranate tea, feijoa-pomegranate syrup, feijoa lemon-strawberry muffins, feijoa-pomegranate honey, and plenty of feijoa eating. Sadly, 95% of our crop is now down and processed….but we are already looking forward to next year!

It was a lot of fun having them in abundance here in California this year – we have 30 trees presently, though not all producing yet…and we have strawberry guavas (feijoa) as well as the more common pineapple guava(feijoa).
