Best Practices for hand pollinating rollinia?

a.t.jamesonNovember 24, 2009

I live in Pinellas county and have two rollinia deliciosas in large containers that are about 4 years old. They are finaly flowering, but I cannot seem to succesfully pollinate them by hand. Anyone have any advice on what works best?

Thanks,

Adam

Simply collect pollin from the male flowers that are ready to shed their pollin and brush the pollin on the female flowers. If there are no female flowers you might try saving pollin till the following morning when more blooms open.

Where I am the best time seems to be late afternoon.
Hope that helps.

I planted my tree last year. It was appx 2.5 ft talk. It is now over 8ft tall. I feel it should be ready to bloom soon. Any ideas on how to make this happen? Maybe some more potassium? It is growing so fast. My other annonas are 3yrs old, that is sugar apple and custard apple and atemoya. My Rollinia has out grown them all in just one year.
