hi, does anyone know if a single fijoa tree will bare fruit or do you need two different varieties?

A single tree should do the trick.

And Gus...don't get a Bunnings plant! They do squat. You can google the forum for this topic - see top right corner of this page.

Why so Amanda? (goes off to find posts)

I have a bunnings one, 1 yr old, but have backed it up with a Daleys Duffy.

Ah Amanda, I found it. Flowers but no fruit at 3 years old.

If a plant flowers, and has bees, but fails to fruit, would it always be a genetic problem in the plant? Could it be a nutrient (imbalance), or lack of maturity problem?

I didn't know better when I bought this unknown from Bunnings but I'm going to let it have a good crack. I might even sneak yet another named variety in somewhere... just in case.

BTW how big were they at 3?

Hi Araich - I don't really know but someone else mentioned that they are seedling grown and unnamed. Mine pushed out the odd flowers but nothing came of them (I had 5 trees of them) Perhaps they were unable to pollinate each other - or maybe I had to wait 20yrs for fruit!
Definitely not nutrient related in my case - as I have no problems with getting anything else to fruit (including all my guava spp) Maybe the seed source is the problem.
Mine didn't get that big - about 1.5m - most of my trees get "bonsiad" by the wind here!

I got a tree from tass one trees that is probably about 1 metre high, but don't think it had a name. I saw the same unnamed trees in bunnings so think I may need to get a named variety to pollinate with. Where can you get a named variety in Perth?

Yes I just teamed up "Mammoth" with "Large Oval" - fingers crossed they are compatible. Seedling trees are pretty unreliable but may act as a pollinator for an improved cultivar if you can't find anything else.

Gus - the guy was expecting a big shipment from Daleys about now (when I was in Perth recently he told me) He has had named varieties previously - if he hasn't got any now I am sure he will order for you for next time?

Thanks Amanda. I assume you mean the guy from tass1trees is expecting a shipment? My unnamed variety is actually growing fairly well after a month or so, but by the sounds of it I will be lucky if it ever grows fruit by itself.

I called Joe, and he has mammoth, nazemette and triumph. I only have space for two feijoa trees, so can't decide whether to get rid of the unnamed and grow two named trees, or just back up the unnamed perhaps with a mammoth? I guess thats difficult to answer, but any suggestions?

Glowinski says Mammoth is the natural pollinator for Triumph so if you were going to choose two then I'd go for that combo. Mammoth will set some fruit on its own but not Triumph - the unnamed and a Mammoth might be ok as well.

I'm annoyed I bought an unnamed but I don't think we should all be ripping them out.

Maybe with our combined effort we could work out what the unnamed is, via pressure on Bunnings and the supplier... after all this looks bad for Bunnings.

I am frustrated myself, but my nameless came from a good nursery. Only been planted for a month or so, so maybe best to cut my losses. Maybe there is someone out there that has had some great success from unnamed?

I cut my losses and got rid of my unnamed and bought a mammoth and a triumph. Joe from Tass1trees said you might get fruit from an unnamed tree if you plant a named variety near by, but I don't have the space or patience!
