Hi is it required to have a male and female feijoa tree? for cross pollination From:

It is not Male and Female pollinated where you need a male tree and a female tree but Feijoas do require cross pollination from another variety of Feijoa or a seedling Feijoa

Feijoa - Apollo (Cutting) 10/10

Emma1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3027 days 7hrs

Comments: -

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 cardboard. Lets hope if I eventually get fruit they will taste better! At least the plants a very hardy and have tolerated some very dry conditions where they are.

Feijoa - Apollo

Linnie's Edible Fruits
Update: 3041 days 9hrs

I only recently bought this when I realised that the original Feijoa that I planted years ago was a seedling (which didn't fruit)! Sadly, I didn't mark it adequately or have it in a grow-tube, and, following the amazing growing season, it was lost in long grass and beheaded the other day. (Plants at my place need to be survivors!) I have cut it back and will protect what remains in the hope that it will reshoot...... ok, some months later, it has reshot! yay... hopefully, above, rather than below, the graft, or else i am back to the beginning of this saga!!! :)

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.

Started to flower now in Melbourne after one and a year from purchase in a 45 ltr pot. Applied Sudden Impact by Neutrog and super phosphate early spring.
