"A tiny avocado? No, I’m not! I’m a feijoa and I grow where it’s hot. Pineapple guava is my other name. South America, New Zealand is whence I came. I’m soft and sweet; eat me with a spoon. But I’m bitter ‘till fall, so don’t pick me too soon. My flower petals also taste fine. I invite you, children, come and dine."
