Pineapple Guava

ceebee(8b FL)July 5, 2013

My plant is well established...about four feet by four feet. It had blossoms last year and this year but they all dropped.
What do I need to do to get it to produce? Do I need another plant for cross pollination?

Most Pineapple Guava's, 'Feijoa sellowiana' are self fertile and do not need a pollinator, although it would help. Do you have a named variety? If so, it should bear fruit when it reaches maturity in a few more years, probably 2 or 3. Al

Mine is very old, large and established - most years, it drops all its fruits. I've been told this is caused by spider mites.

Thanks for your help.
My tree is five or six years old, so I hope I don't have to wait much longer.

kayjones...have you ever had fruit?
