This sun-loving vine is hardy through zone 11!

Grow near 1 to 8 females for a big crop of yummy fruit!
Grow a tantalizing crop of exotic, sweetly flavored Kiwi Fruit with this male pollinator plant and up to 8 female plants! This species is easy to grow and quite attractive, yielding a big crop of yummy, nutritious fruit.

Kiwi Fruit matures in autumn, setting egg-shaped 2- to 3-ounce fruits. This is a male pollinator, so it will not set fruit, but will pollinate females, including Hardy Red Kiwi plants.

This male pollinator is a vining plant that thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. Give it something to climb, for it can reach 15 to 20 feet high. Trellises, openwork fences (such as chain-link), walls, and other garden structures are ideal for Kiwi to climb or thread through. Very low maintenance and long-lived!

The flavor of kiwi has been described as a combination of pineapple and strawberry, with a fresh, almost citrus-y tang and a slight crunch from the seeds. If you haven't tasted a homegrown Kiwi, you are in for a treat! Hardy in zones 4-11.
