Bare Root Kiwi Vines

The Kiwi originated in China and arrived in the U.S. via Australia. It’s one of our more unusual fruits – brown, fuzzy skin with bright green flesh – possessing a unique tart-sweet flavor. The vines are vigorous, requiring a strong supporting structure.

These kiwis require a male and female plant in order to produce fruit.  The male is needed for pollination and bears no fruit. It does, however, pollinate up to eight females. Vincent and Tomuri are very low chill varieties needing only about 100 hours of chilling. The Issai hardy kiwi differs in many respects from the other two. It is self-fruitful and the vine can be grown in Zones 5 to 9, withstanding much colder temperatures than Vincent and Tomuri. In addition, the fruits are much smaller and fuzzless. The hardy kiwi produces earlier, generally fruiting in its second year, whereas the larger fruited varieties usually need 4 years or more. Kiwi blossoms appear in the spring and the fruit is ready for harvest in the fall.
