fruits
Acca sellowiana (Feijoa or Pineapple Guava)

Cultivated above 5,000 feet the green fruit is called freijoa in Colombia where the guava-like pulp is usually eaten using your mouth or spoon. Like many of the delicious exotic tropical fruits listed here, it is not well known outside of the tropics, often because of shipping and handling and storage difficulties. Normally available in Colombian supermarkets in small quantities. Photographed in the eastern Andes mountain range of Colombia (Cordillera Oriental).
