Feijoa fruit Sydney

    36 responses

Bron357 starts with ...
Hi, we have a huge Feijoa tree, over 5 metres, here in the inner west of Sydney which creates a mountain load of fruit which goes to complete waste (we don't eat them). The tree is currently in flower. If anyone wants to have some fruit let me know and I can message you once the fruit has formed, another month or two I think. Cheers.

Hi Bron,
I love Feijoas and I've been buying them from Feijoa Direct up until now, about $60 for 15kg. Unfortunately, they now have a complete sales deal with Harris Farm and don't sell private anymore. Come feijoa season in March/April, I'm happy to do a trade for some of your fruit!

Hi all, I'm sorry to report that we've been besieged by fruit bats. I heard this squealing the other night and thought it was fighting cats, but no, the fruit bats this year found the Feijoa tree. They have monstered the tree. We'll obviously have to try netting it next year. Apologies, for years and years no trouble with bats, but this year - wham.

Hi Catriona


Most feijoa varieties will grow and fruit well in Sydney. If you can only afford one tree because of space constraint select the self fertile varieties like feijoa oval, unique, mammoth, and nazematze though they will all benefit from cross pollination if another variety is nearby.
Go for it. They are one of the easiest trees to grow in the sub tropics up to the cooler areas of OZ.

Happy Gardening :-)

Hi Bron
Iā€™m a kiwi living in the inner west... Iā€™m 8 months pregnant and seriously craving feijoas! These were a massive part of my childhood and I miss them soooo much. How is your tree flourishing in 2018? I will happily pay cold hard cash for your fruit!

Hi Tara and to all feijoa lovers

For the long term solution, plant a feijoa in a big pot if you haven't got enough space or renting. It's fun and easy. Go for the grafted variety for a shorter waiting period with your first harvest. Select a self fertile cv if you can only afford one.

Happy gardening :-)

Hi Metalhead

I saw some feijoas still on sale today at our local Coles maybe yours may still have some stragglers too. I know freshly picked feijoas are way better than a store bought one, just in case Bron no longer have fresh feijoa fruits.

Happy feijoa hunting :-)

Hi Bron

I would LOVE some feijoas when they ripen this summer!!! I've just planted six cultivars but it will take a while to get decent amounts of fruit!

Also check out the facebook group 'cropswap' - you may be able to get some cool produce in return for some of your feijoas :)

Hi everyone

Just an update on my unique, Apollo, and nazematze feijoas that I bought from Daley's last year. They are almost 2 meters in height now and are flowering profusely from head to toe. Could not be more than happier with the outstanding result.
As always happy gardening šŸ˜Ž

Hi. Just want to share my experience with those wanting to grow Feijoas. I am growing 4 Feijoa varieties in Katoomba (which avoids fruit flies) - Duffy, Nazematse, Unique and White Goose. Duffy and Unique turned out to be considerably more productive so far, with very large fruit. Very happy with the result. Cheers.

Hi Edward3,

Thanks for your info. I was wondering what is your Duffy fruit size as Daleys mentioned its size up to 200gm and Apollo supposed to be larger. My Duffy is still young and Apollo fruit weights is less than 100gr which confused me. Cheers.

We had a very enjoyable feijoa season this year because we used fruit fly nets on our two largest trees - mammoth and an unnamed seedling. I'm keeping the trees pruned to no more than 7ft height to allow getting the cover on after a good crop has set. It works!

Dear GlenMac
I have not been able to buy feijoas anywhere.
Would you consider selling me some of your feijoa? (a couple of kilos would be amazing).
I cannot offer any home-grown fruits as I don't have a garden. I am happy to buy any fruit you like for you.
Thank you!

Is there a way to get in touch with you elsewhere, perhaps via phone or messenger? Perhaps I can give you my number and when you have got the next harvest, you can then text me and I will come and collect? Thank you.

Hi David
Sorry to be late in replying - haven't checked this thread for a while. With regard to Duffy, I have not weighed the fruit so can't tell you. But one thing I noticed is that the fruit in the second year of bearing was much larger and well filled out compared to the first year. Also, the fruit sizes vary - some are quite large while others have not filled out. At least the crop is considerably more than the Nazematze which is a little disappointing. Perhaps the Nazematze needs a bit more time. The Unique on the other hand started bearing quite quickly and the fruit is a good size from the start.

Hi Edward3,

I have 4 different cvs. Apollo first time fruits weight about 100-120gr but their fragrance scent does not smell strongly like my unknown neighbour Feijoas. The others need to wait until next year to see how it smell and taste. If Unique is good I will add to my collection when it is available. Cheers
