feijoia

linnie starts with ...
hello.... i have only just discovered ... (DOH)... that my feijoia is a SEEDLING!!! i thought i had bought a grafted one but found the seedling tag (my error, not yours, i must have been in a cheap mood and then chosen to ignore my rash decision for a few years, until discovering the tag).. is it worth keeping for seedling fruit? are any seedling fruits nice? how long is it before seedlings usually fruit? thank you. linnie

Your seedling will not produce the same quality of fruits as a grafted tree but as they all produce a much better crop if they are pollinated you could keep it for this purpose. Seedling feijoas are reasonably fast to flower and fruit, I have seen them flowering here in their pots. They are an economical way to pollinate your favourite variety of grafted feijoa.

Don't waste your time with a seedling feijoa - they are not difficult to graft on to - so would recommend that you get some scion wood off a named variety and graft in August/Sept.

thank you Kath, and thank you also, Merv! i will look for a good feijoa, then, and keep my seedling one for x-pollination, and perhaps to graft onto when i find that nice one :). i wonder why mine has never flowered yet, as they are meant to be quick; it has been in the ground for quite a while already??!!??? thanks again!

While on the subject of Feijoas, maybe someone will be able to help me with my problem. Lots of fruit but they all dropped off, and when I cut them open, they were dry and grainy in texture. Maybe it is the coastal enviroment and lacking something in the soil.
