A fruit that is increasing in popularity in the United States is the Feijoa, also known as the Pineapple Guava or Brazilian Guava. It's commonly found in Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Paraguay, Uruguay and New Zealand.Once the fruits have fallen from the tree, it is at its ripest form, which is the perfect time to harvest them and turn them into our purees.
It has a floral and tropical aroma, with a bright, sweet-tart taste. Flavor notes include hints of pineapple, guava, apple, melon, citrus and mint. Feijoa makes incredible cocktails and beverages. It pairs perfectly with light food dishes or can be enjoyed just by itself. Some say when they’ve brewed with this fruit, the beer almost tastes like sour candy, sweet and tart, accompanied by a big fruit character.

Very good experience. I whish you had a black currant.
This is as good as it gets! Used in a New Zealand IPA. 3 different NZ hops DDH, then added the Feijoa Puree to the secondary. The smell was pure and delightful. Tasted tart and slightly sweet as it should! Delicious.. just waiting on the Brew to carbonate and chill! Going to be amazing I know it! If you're considering it, BUY IT! Highest quality!
Super sour at first, but surprisingly good when you add sugar to it!
With an apple crumble recipe in mind, I told Fierce Fruit that I was looking for a flavor that would pair well with the sweetness of apples, and they recommended the Feijoa! After I received it, I have to say, I was a little bit skeptical of this puree at first because I’ve never tried this fruit before and the flavor was very sour. But WOW, all of my doubts were erased when I tasted the feijoa apple crumble. My apple crumble usually comes out completely sweet, but with the feijoa puree addition, it had a beautiful sweet & tart flavor that completely elevated the apple crumble! Thank you Dana for the suggestion!
This had a nice sweet tart taste that is hard to find. It's good for adding a bit of zest. I like how there's 27% vitamin C per serving
