growing feijoas in brisbane - is it worth it ?

Mention fejoa and the next word seems to be fruit fly. Has anyone had success with fejoas in Brisbane without added fruit fly ?
Also, which variety of fejoa has the larger greyish more astringent fruit with a thicker skin (as compared with smaller fruit with thinner smoother green skin ) ?

I can't vouch for success in Brisbane but if taking the risk the standard strategy would be to try an early maturing variety. 'Unique' is early, self-fertile and also bluish though it's hard to say whether it's the one you're familiar with.

Grow what's suited to climate and let nature takes it cause. No point on using water just to let it survive in a drought.


Palmetto Soft Leaf Buffalo is ideally suited as a lawn in many applications.
