I have a problem with my 3 guava bushes. They are flowering prolifically and the fruit set but fall off almost immediately after setting. What can be the problem?

Hi Amanda

There is plenty of bee activity. They have plenty of green growth and I have been giving them Aftergraze, which is a general farm fert! The weather in summer is up to 45deg and in the winter we get below zero at night. They are 4 years old. Thanks for taking the time to answer Amanda.

Guavas set fruit very easily and are easy to pollinate.The weather should not be a problem except when cool in winter.It is best not to fertilise with excess N or inorganics with chlorides.I would check for bug bites on the flower bases.What variety are they?

Gee Mike. I am not sure. I will check for bug bites though. Nitrogen is a good point to. I may have been giving too much.
They were called tropical feijoa. My son purchased what he thought was feijoa as a present to us, but they are nothing like feijoa. The leaf is the same as a guava, so I thought tropical feijoa was just another name for guava.

Thanks Mike
