New Zealand autumn feijoa crop is looking good

In New Zealand, the annual feijoa crop is now in good supply. According to NZ Feijoa Growers Association manager Ian Turk, much of the 2023 crop has escaped significant damage from flooding in January and Cyclone Gabrielle. “Feijoas are grown commercially from Northland through to the top of the South Island. This geographical spread has helped maintain crop volumes despite a challenging season. While the weather has disrupted the usual timing of the season, and fruit is a little later this year than normal, we’re expecting a good supply of fruit this season.”

However, while the amount of fruit will be similar to previous years, Turk warns that shoppers may find the feijoas in their local stores to be a bit more expensive than usual: “The high winds and adverse weather conditions have left their mark on the skin of the 2023 crop. But shoppers can be assured that the taste has not been compromised, you can still expect the same delicious flavor from this year’s crop.”
