Mystery Fruit

I was at the grocery store a few weeks ago up in Healdsburg. As my friend Wendy and I were racing through the isles grabbing all of the items we needed for our fall harvest/apple dinner, a few things caught my eye. They were fruits that I didn't recognize. I had to stop and snap a few photos with my camera phone.

Do you know what they are??

The green fruit is a feijoa. Similar to a pineapple guava, I guess this fruit originated in Brazil. But did you know it can also be found in Australia?? I'll have to keep my eyes open for it when I'm out there! (Or at least buy one the next time I see it in my local grocery store.)

The second fruit? The tamarillo. Or tree tomato. How cool. Now why oh why did I not buy one of each?? Am I going to spend the next few weeks obsessing over these unusual fruits until I find them again and taste them for myself?

Has anyone tasted either? Am curious to hear what they taste like and your experiences with these unusual fruits!
