Pollination of Buddha's hand

Posted by prhart western NC (My Page) on

Does anyone have suggestions about how to get this to set fruit. My tree has numerous blooms but has only produced one fruit in the past three years. Insects don't seem to be terribly interested. Is it effective to take a small paint brush and try transferring pollen in that way? Are there any fruit setting hormones that work?

I used a cheap child's artist paintbrush (you can use a Q-top) to pollinate my lemon, lime and mardarin. Easy as pie and it works...
