when to hand pollinate feijoa (pineapple guava)
I have two lost variety name feijoa bushes that are starting to bloom right now, and I've tried to hand pollinate them in previous years with zero success. This year I bought a Nazemetz feijoa hoping that having a different variety around would make a difference. But it bloomed a month before the other two and although I hand pollinated it I had no success.
I'm doing this in the late afternoon and I wonder if there is a certain time of day or condition(cool day?)when feijoa's need to be pollinated, a time when the pollen is most viable.
