    We have 2 plants, one is 3yrs old and the second is about 10yrs old in our north facing back yard in Melb's sand belt. We have lots of flowers however only 1-2 fruits p/yr.nd v seldom any fruit sets. Our resident wattle birds love the petals, frequently stripping the flowers, and so I wonder if that is an issue? It is also v close to a strong olive tree and I wonder if that is an issue. Some people in a neighbouring street have two ancient, small feijoas in their lawn, and they are prolific with fruit. Welcome advice

    My kiwi folks' feijoa plant in suburban Melbourne has been renovated around and isn't in the best position. Yields are hit and miss year to year but it wants to grow even if it doesn't fruit lots. Doesn't seem to mind a brutal prune. Tough cookie. 2020 crop is huge!

    Love the show guys, and really appreciate all the hard work you guys put in. Thank you so very much. Can you tell me can i clone a feijoa tree from a cutting? I brought a feijoa and am trimming the main until it's taller and was just wandering if I could clone from these instead of wasting recurring, thought might make a nice gift. Cheers.

    Our tree in Sydney gets destroyed by fruit fly. Any suggestions?

    Feijoa comes from Feijão, a portuguese word for Bean, Feijoa is like a feminine word
    its origin is in Brazil and a couple more countries around, wish I could find it

    I love feijoas, they’re the most undervalued fruit.

    I have 6 feijoas in my garden (8-10 years old), that grow fairly well, flower reasonably but dont set fruit. I'm in cool temperate southern highlands of NSW, they are well mulched and get some drip irrigation in dry weather and we have two bee-hives. I don't know what's going wrong
