Customer Tips & Reviews Feijoa
LESCHENAULT, WA, Australia
Acca sellowiana. Sadly it's almost impossible to get named varieties in WA, especially now there is the myrtle rust problem and quarantine bans. So we are stuck with generic "non name" plants - which don't produce very impressive fruit. The tree is ea...

Another interesting fruit that seems appropriate to grow in our yard. Looking forward to the flowers (and hopefully some fruit) in the years ahead

Got this unknown specimen on eBay. I originally had 2 but one died as it was rootbound although planting in a larger container did not seem to help. The other one is happily growing in Osmocote premium potting mix i have since added some, chicken pelle...

Willow Vale, QLD, Australia
pretty tree, only needed a stake to help hold it up so far. Full of flowers and I think if we are lucky, we might get some fruit this season.
The trees have beautiful foliage and the tree is very hardy. I originally had 5, two which I bought from bunnings and three from a local nursery. I am not sure what type any are. The two from bunnings do not seem to be doing as well as the other three...

It gives us lots of fruit and is a good climbing tree, also it was lovely bark leaves and flowers.
Cringila, NSW, Australia
EDIT 2014 Going crazy now, flowered lots last season, hopefully lots of fruit this season Mum likes these, reminds her of childhood in NZ.Is putting on a fair bit of new growth. Not in an ideal spot (Yet. Adding swales/mulch etc shortly), but going q...
Wantirna South, Vic, Australia
I like the taste. It tastes like guava which I ate a lot as a kid in my country as we had a hugh tree.
Greenbank, Qld, Australia
this grows quickly, has branches from ground level and is also called the pineapple guava. I planted it for a kiwi friend who misses them from home. It hasnt fruited yet but it grew so well I planted a mixed guava hedge along my side fence. If I can ke...

I love to grow Feijoa in my backyard. Their fragrant flesh is just magic and with grafted plants I can produce lots to enjoy with my kids!
CROWS NEST, QLD, AUSTRALIA
I have just started planting fruit trees on our 1/2 acre block - the Feijoa will make a nice addition and will help make our ice smoothies taste great!
Clemton Park, NSW, Australia

Kalgoorlie, WA, Australia
Planted Sept 2009 - Growing well, several new shoots. 20/10/09 Nipped buds to get more bushy growth. 10/1/10 Seems to have stopped growing in the heat.
Albany, WA, Australia
A bit erratic here. Grows well some years then nearly dies. Probably the wet feet in winter. Produces lovely perfumed fruit when it is not sulking.
A Bunnings "home brand" feijoa - will likely never do anything...Had trouble with my first 4 due to wind exposure - they are naked on windward side!. They were also prone to collar rot. The two in the orchard doing much better.Nov 2010: The orchard pla...
Tough, easily grown plant. Must have a few and preferably different varieties for adequate pollination. Trim only after fruit flush is finished. Apply potash late Winter. Eat the fruit out of hand and flowers in salads.
Only buy varieties with low grafts as they sprout low.Hedge well but reduces fruiting. Remove 1 leader each year (usually about 5) after established. Mulch well & keep water up in heat when flowering. We have occasional snow flurries and these guys are OK
