Vigorous twining vine needs no pollinizer plant to produce delicious smooth-skinned fruit. Good production from a showy landscape specimen. Attractive on arbor or trellis.
Espalier. Kiwi vines are ideal candidates for training onto virtually any kind of arbor or trellis. Grow along the top of a fence line for a long run of foliage. Will arch over a covered gateway too.
To create a warm season fruit garden, plant kiwi with other producers such as Dwarf Redblush Grapefruit, (Citrus paradisi 'Dwarf Redblush'), Southmoon Blueberry, (Vaccinium x 'Southmoon'), Flame Seedless Grape, (Vitis vinifera 'Flame Seedless') and Indian Summer Raspberry, (Rubus idaeus 'Indian Summer').
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer. Provide support such as a trellis or arbor. Prune annually to control size.
