Different guava cross pollination

    3 responses

RDavies starts with ...
I have a regular guava next to a younger pineapple guava (Feijoa) and want to plant a strawberry guava as well. Will 3 different types help to cross pollinate each other or are they too far different from each other? How close do guava need to be to cross pollinate?

I"m thinking they're not closely enough related to pollinate each other. The regular guava and the strawberry guava should form crops on their own but unless you have a self fertile feijoa you won't get fruit on it in all probability

Oh dear, I sort of suspected what you said. The Feijoa is now about 4 years old and hasn’t shown any signs of fruiting so you might be right.
I will give it another year to redeem itself and if it doesn’t fruit, it was get ripped out.
Thanks for the heads up.

Did your feijoa have any flowers yet? I was just wondering whether you were asking about cross pollination in advance. If it did have flowers but no fruit, then why not plant a second feijoa for cross pollination. The fruit is really delicious, better than guavas in my opinion. See if you can get the variety called Unique, which is self fertile. I have one growing in Katoomba and it had a huge crop even though only a few years old.
