Anonymous added on January 15, 2011 | Answered

I get wonderful fragrant blooms, but the fruit doesn’t set. Can the tree be self-pollinated by hand?

If you feel the tree is not setting fruit due to pollination, it can be hand pollinated. Simply take a small paint brush and swirl it around in the blossoms and move from blossom to blossom.
