The mention of feijoas sets my mouth watering with the memory being 
introduced to them in New Zealand this last March.  They are hedges in the 
north island. My friend said "hey, these look ripe, ever eaten one?" they 
were perfectly ripe. The next thing I knew we were in a feeding frenzy, 
really, just out and out animal fruit lust.Must have eaten 15.  Never had 
that happen before.  Later that week a friend offered one in his kitchen and 
it was just a nice fruit to eat. nothing more. Fresh off the tree in its 
natural habitat, nothing like it. Reminds me of childhood and going out 
alone at dawn to see if my fathers nectarines were ripe and fresh with dew. 
And relates to Mitch Lind's excellent "great moments in apple history" in 
the last Pomona
You inspire me to try container growing here in Z2/3 Thanks, Del
