For what it's worth, I'm a big fan of abiu. I find it very refreshing, the fruit has a large amount of flesh with a sweet caramel flavor. I am in north Queensland so likely have got lucky with good genetics. My trees flower and set fruit quite regularly, maybe around 4-5 times in the last year.

This is a little old thread but would like some help. I planted an  abiu I bought on here from HI. Seedling tree not grafted. It has flowered in my friends yard last 2 years but never set fruit. Also alot of the flowers seem to drop off any suggestions?
This year he told me a bit late but been giving it some added calcium, mag and Phos and kelp.
It looks very nice and green just the flowers are dropping off. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
DOes it need more time to age?

You need cross pollination.

OH no not good, so I need to have another tree or 2 around? Or is a matter of not enough Bees. Sounds like I may have to another tree or too aye in some large pots cause I doubt they have space in the yard for too more abiu trees.

I only have one tree that
 set a good amount of fruit this year. I'm sure cross pollination will help though. Might be variety dependent.
I highly doubt there is another one anyone nearby. There's only a few mangos around my neighborhood
