Hello, did u have just the one tree? I'm just reading that they need or do better with other trees to help pollinate? Cos I have 2 seedling trees bout 3m tall in big pots but the flowers never form into fruit. Thanks!
ivepeters says... [1353 days 2hrs ago]
Just the one, had it 10 years now, still produces stacks of fruit although last couple of years native animals have taken a liking to them. Suggest a named cultivar, less seeds if any, mine was a standard one from Bunnings, lots of seeds.

Can always graft better varieties onto yours. Ask forum if anyone has any to give.
