Feijoas: Origins, Cultivation and Uses

by Grant Thorp and Rod Bieleski

David Bateman, Ltd., Auckland, New Zealand, 2002. (87 pp., paperback). In as new condition

The Horticulture and Food Research Institute of New Zealand, formerly the DSIR (Department of Scientific and Industrial Research), has had a team of horticulturists developing through experiment and experience the information needed to grow feijoas in commercial groves. This book reflects what they have learned and is a splendid source of information for anyone who wants to grow feijoas for the fruit, whose current botanical name is Acca sellowiana (formerly Feijoa sellowiana).

The book covers botanical information, cultivars, considerations in establishing an orchard, pruning, flowering and fruit growth, nutrition and irrigation, pest and disease control, harvest and storage, and then some information on how to use the fruit.
