Grumichama

    6 responses

Perry the Pom starts with ...
G'day
I have a large 10 year old Grumichama fruit tree. When it flowers there are thousands and the tree look beautiful. Sadly 99% do not set. I have managed to sample a few but for some reason the fruit never set. Please could somebody tell me what I need to do. The tree is very health. It is planted next to my compost bins in full sun and always well watered.
Thank you.

Not sure Perry, sounds like you are doing everything right. I presume you have lots of bees pollinating the flowers?

Wahhh! I pruned my grumichama this winter and must have pruned off the current seasons fruiting wood - cos I only got two flowers (so far)...?

So sad :( Is it always this way when u prune them - or did I do something wrong?

Thanks guys - it will be a painful lesson never forgotten! :-( I might get lucky BJ - only had the one flush last year tho.

My second tree must be really close to fruiting age - maybe next year - I heard somewhere that they take 4 years?

(it's probably lucky that the 2 flowers fell off...only 2 fruit would have been the worst tease)

I have had a lot of trees failing to fruit and I put the cause to having too perfect and fertile soil that cost time and money. Perhaps you could get some trailer loads of yellow sandy soil, and maybe a few rocks. Do a half hearted short job of mixing it into your really nice soil.
