Might add just a bit of honey as well as it should go very nice with feijoa.
My experience has been that the honey will ferment almost entirely and is hard to detect in small amounts. It has left the final product proportionately drier than without the honey and upped ABV but it's been difficult to retain any of the honey character. My favorite method for adding honey to ciders is to use honey as the priming sugar during bottling then pasteurizing the cider once it's carbonated to my liking. You'll have to add more honey than would be necessary to carb the cider as you want some sweetness to remain at pasteurization. Just make sure you keep checking carbonation levels and pasteurize the cider as soon as it's to your liking or you'll have created many of zee bottle bombas. Good luck!
