The Q&A Archives: Pineapple Guava Best Variety For Hedge

Question: Planting a hedge and want best variety of feijoa for fast growing dense hedge to reach 12-15 feet in height, with good fruit edibility.

Answer: 'Beechwood', 'Coolidge', 'Mammoth' 'Nazemetz' and 'Trask' are self-fruitful, but cross-pollination will produce a better crop. For best fruit production choose at least two of the above varieties and alternate the plants as you plant your hedge. Feijoa will grow 18'-25' high and wide unless pruned regularly. The number of plants you'll need will depend upon how quickly you want them to fill in, and how often you plan to prune. Enjoy your new hedge!
