FEIJOA TREE

Feijoa FruitBotanical Name: Acca sellowiana
Description

Sometimes called the pineapple guava the feijoa, although in the same family is not a guava. Becoming increasingly popular as a commercial crop, the fruit has the taste and aroma of strawberry, pineapple, lemon, passionfruit and guava. The tiny edible seeds are embedded in a jellylike center. The spectacular purple, pink and white flowers have sweet delicious petals that make a superb ingredient in sweets and drinks.
Trees are very attractive and can be planted to form beautiful flowering and fruiting hedges, screens or windbreaks.  They espalier well and can be trained as a small standard tree or a multi-trunked specimen.  They are well suited to pot culture and even seedling trees will produce flowers and fruits after as little as three years.

Question & Answer

Just wondering which variety you'd recommend for a hedge (to about 2m high). How many to plant for a hedgerow - ie plants per metre spacing. Note am in subtropical SEQ. From: kin kin QLD

plant more that one variety as they fruit best with cross pollination, they all have a similar appearance, size, shape and colour so you can mix them with them looking odd, or choose the seedling plants, they will all be genetically different and are economical for using in a hedge, they take a little longer to fruit, approx 4 years and the fruits will all vary.

I am wondering if there are any evergreen, edible trees that will grow in a cooler climate, I live in Budnanoon 2578 and sometimes have frost during winter. Thanks. From: Bundanoon NSW

I would suggest Feijoa, Loquat, Cherry Guava and Pine Nut as possible edible evergreen trees for a cold climate #CategoryFeijoa1331 #GuavaStrawberry1040 #CategoryLoquat1998 #CategoryPine2188

When will start fruiting ? From: CARLINGFORD NSW

Seedling feijoas can take 3-4 years to commence fruiting, for quicker fruiting and true to type fruit the named grafted selections are an excellent choice#CategoryFeijoa1331

Is it esential to have more than one fejoa tree for pollination. Mine flowers profusely every year, but no fruits. | Reny - Joy, VIC 23-Jan-2012

I have plenty of fruit with only one Feijoa tree and none nearby, so I'm not sure about the comment of needing more than one for pollination. | Tom Flanagan - Lismore, NSW 10-Feb-2013

Apollo are my favorite...I once had one fruit the size and shape of a large pear.....the pulp went right to the skin and it was sweet as too. | Jonathan - Perth, WA 15-May-2015

They are delicious the flowers and you can eat the pedals they taste like strawberry and are very sweet. Great for salads or fruit salad, Beautiful looking plant which we grow in our exclusion orchard making us very spoilt here at Daleys Fruit Tree Nursery. If you have them in your home garden you will need to net them. Large Egg shaped fruits with sour flavour. New Zealanders are very accustom to them. We think it is great for an edible hedge tree./p>
