Whopper a wonder to behold
Rex and Janice Wells have been proudly showing off a whopping 315g feijoa.
The couple found the feijoa last week under a feijoa tree they planted three years ago.
‘‘I’ve never had one this big,’’ Janice said.
‘‘We will keep it for a little while to show everybody.’’
The feijoa is 12.7cm or long.
An average-sized feijoa on the couple’s tree weighed about 110g.
The variety is mammoth.
The couple have three other feijoa trees as well.
‘‘They are not producing very well this year,’’ Janice said.
The couple said they were unsure what they would do with the feijoa but have numerous recipes such as feijoa chutney, loaf, cupcakes, jam and wine.
