Vigorous growing, deciduous vine produces tasty, egg size fruit. Needs little winter chill, ideal for milder climates. Flowers open creamy white and fade to buff. Requires male pollinator.
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.
