Feijoa - Mammoth (Grafted) 8/10

Update: 1297 days 7hrs

Comments: - May 2015: Planted in the front yard next to my Duffy Feijoa.  This was purchased locally from a nursery and it appeared to have been there for some time.  That said, it enjoyed the freedom of being in the ground and has grown quite well for me.  Watered rarely and well mulched.  It has started to take off a little in recent months with some new growth but I'm expecting his to lessen in the coming months.

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pollination: Cross Pollination

Feijoa - Mammoth (Grafted) 6/10

Justin1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1198 days 12hrs

One of these is doing fairly well.  Another is very slow to grow, probably because it is planted in an area where a gum tree (street tree) has roots.  It's also fairly exposed (the one doing better is protected a bit by a fence).  I am tip pruning to encourage bushiness as it will be part of a hedge. However, I wasn't aware beforehand that the graft would be so high so I may have to do something to deal with the gappy hedge that is sure to result.

UPDATE: One of these died in the harsh summer (multiple days > 40 and no rain). The other is ok and producing a fair amount of fruit.  My advice for most evergreen trees in Melbourne is make sure they get a decent amount of shade in summer.

Have grown these in other places and found it problem free. Big fan of eating it straight of the tree with a spoon to scoop out the flesh,

This tree has grown well and flowered well, with no fruit. I was under the impression that these are trees that fruit easily here in Adelaide?. I've planted a no-name variety from Bunnings right next to it to hopefully help pollination.

Comments: - What fruit I got before the fruit fly were great. Eventually cut out due to unable to beat fruit fly, which was  a shame as I grew them as a boy in New Zealand.

Comments: - Love feijoas but haven't managed to get this one to fruit.  (Although it doesn't get much care).  I suspect it might not be getting enough sun.  I'm keeping them though, with the intention of hedging them.
