Forum: Tomatoes & Peppers
There are only a few places in the world with a Mediterranean climate: the Mediterranean, the coast of most of California, the coast of Chile, the tip of South Africa, and the southern tips of Australia. It's a really interesting climate and we're able to grow a lot of things here that are pushing the boundaries of what we can do. So even though feijoa is not native to a Mediterranean climate, it's close enough. And it requires some winter chill to set fruit. Feijoa actually does very well in Berkeley. It's used as a hedging plant here and very few of the people whose yards it is in know the fruit's edible. Which means lots of good foraging!
