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...

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...

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!

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!

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.

Feijoa

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.

Feijoa

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
