Feijoa Apolla Fruit also showing the flesh scooped out. This is easily done with a spoon even though the skin is quite thin. This fruit was picked at Daleys Fruit Tree Nursery and is part of our stock plants.
Apolla Feijoa fruit picked from Daleys Nursery. We simply put a net over the fruit and had no problems with fruit fly. The fruit fly could have flown underneath the net to get at the fruit but none did. Meaning that they only come in from the sides.

Customer Tips & Reviews Feijoa - Apollo
TAMWORTH, NSW, Australia
This is more vigorous than my other two feijoas (unique, nazemetz). Its harder to espalier this one because the laterals are stiffer and unwieldly. Anyway, I will persevere to bend it to my wishes.
ACACIA RIDGE, QLD, Australia
I love feijoasthe Apollo cultivar has a good reputation...lets see what it can do in backyard brisbane.Meant to have large fruit!!
COBURG, VIC, Australia
Very similar performance to the Mammoth, but doing slightly better.UPDATE 2014: Stacks of fruit off these trees. Perform better if they get afternoon shade in Melbourne as the summers are harsh.
WATERFALL, NSW, Australia
Still a small tree, growing steadily with little attention.
YELLOW ROCK, NSW, Australia
Survived Oct13 bushfires and fruiting mar15Took a while to take off but a pretty easy plant to grow - fruits well with very little attention
Bardon, Qld, Australia
I bought 4 plants because I needed a low bush with nice folliage and fruit and flowers are a bonus. The decription of a pineapple-strawberry flavour sounded fantastic, but when I finally tasted some from the shops it tasted like sweetish mouldy cardboa...
