I have 7 of the Feijoa sellowiana planted as a hedge which are about 2 years old and over a meter in height. But I have not had any flowers or fruit yet.
I also have 2 wiki tu, 2 triumph and 2 apollo. (they are all self fertile?)
Is there another variety which would be best to cross pollinate with the Feijoa sellowiana?
They are all looking healthy. I have had fruit from the other 6 fruit trees the last two years, big and juicy! just nothing from the Feijoa sellowiana. All 13 were planted at the same time.
Plant Guides Answer:
If your pineapple guava trees have not flowered yet, then this is not a pollination issue.
Wiki Tu and Triumph need a pollinator. Apollo is self-fertile. You won't find out for certain if your Apollos will pollinate the other varieties until they all begin to flower.
I used to have one of these beautiful plants in my backyard. I grew it from a rooted cutting. It took several years to mature and bloom. It was twice the size of yours when it first flowered.
If the plants are healthy, I suspect they just need a little more time.
