    Kiwi Vine – Actinidia deliciosa 'Matua' – Male (pollinator for the ‘Saanichton’ female)

     

    Information below is only the potential the plant has. You will be receiving one plant between 3 and 7 inches in height shipped in a 3 inch pot. In some cases some leaves may be removed before shipping.

     

    Similar to supermarket variety except somewhat more cold tolerant. Handsome vine. Heavily productive and sweet

     

    The vines can tolerate part shade but prefer a sunny location where they can ramble up to 30 feet across either a substantial trellis, fence, or patio cover. Kiwi vines can be successfully grown in large containers. Harvest in late fall.

    Need well-drained soils and large volumes of water during the growing season.

    Zones 7-9.

    You will need a female for your kiwi to bear fruit, you can find it here. Kiwis are dioecious (male and female plants). Each bid for this item is for one plant. One male plant is adequate to pollinate up to 8 female plants if it is centrally located or 3 – 4 female plants if planted in a row. The female plants produce fruit. The male plants do not produce fruit.
