Q.Blossoms Don\’t Produce Fruit

Zone 91932 | jstrebler52@gmail.com added on September 23, 2020 | Answered

I anticipated a bumper crop of pineapple guavas this year, as my 4-year old trees had dozens of big blossoms. Similarly, my cherimoya trees of similar age had dozens of blossoms that I had hand-pollinated with a small paint brush. And my 5-year old avocado tree had a number of flowers. Yet the guava produced NO fruit this summer, the cherimoyas less than a handful of fruit, and the avocado NO fruit. I water and fertilize regularly and the trees all seem healthy. I live near the beach in So. Cal, by the way. What’s going on? Thank you!

As for your avocado- This is going to require two trees. One for each flowering type. Here is an article that will help:
