Question & Answer

Hi I am looking for a feijoa tree, I am from New Zealand and miss them like crazy, is there a variety that will be suitable to grow in a pot on a balcony? Thanks From:

All Feijoas are very easy to keep small via pruning and is only going to grow to 2m in a pot anyway (4m in the ground) and could be kept much smaller than this by pruning which will also make it nice and bushy. If this is a plant that you really like then I would pay the money to get a grafted variety like Duffy over the cheaper seedling #FeijoaDuffy1032 this way you are going to get fruit much quicker and the fruit size, taste and crop comes from the duffy variety which is known to be large and taste great and also crop well. A seedling is more of a gamble with what you get, takes a bit longer to fruit however benefit of a seedling is they can be more hardy. You will get a bigger crop from having 2 through cross pollination but they should set fruit by themselves.

Just wondering if you had any recommendations re: Apollo or Duffy variety for Dubbo or anything that would make my choice easier? From:

I would get both because you will get a bigger crop through cross pollination having 2 together. They will still fruit by themselves but the crop you get will not be as big. I do like the apollo because of it's size but the duffy is a great cropper. #FeijoaDuffy1032 #FeijoaApollo1031

Comments: - May 2014: My Duffy Feijoa was planted early November with a Mammoth Feijoa next to it.  The Duffy was purchased from Daley's and it was received in great condition.  It has taken some months to establish itself and does enjoy a little fertiliser here and there.  It isn't watered often, though would probably prefer a good drink weekly.  It is well mulched and in full sun.

Hi Inoxa1 Your feijoa won't be in a hurry to grow now where the season is already changing and the growing times is almost over except in the tropics. Expect a lot of growth during spring onwards. I have 3 feijoas bought last spring and they have all more than doubled their sizes. Be patient and take good care of it and you will be rewarded accordingly. Happy gardening :-)
