Has anyone successfully grown feijoas?
Maine et Loire, France
I grew a feijoa from seed about 15 years ago. It made a big shrub and we dug it up when we moved to France 6 years ago. It finally produced a single flower four years ago, and then died in the winter! I bought a 'proper' cultivar last season which I've put in a large pot. It's already got about 20 flowers. Do I need to pollinate these? Is it self fertile or does it need another plant? Although the plant is quite hardy, can I ripen the fruit in a temperate climate?
On plant Acca sellowiana or Feijoa Sellowiana
