The Actinidia arguta Ken's Red kiwi is smooth-skinned and grows in bunches. The fruit is about the size of a large grape. Ken's Red kiwis have red skin and red flesh and are sweeter than most varieties. Very prolific.
You will need a male for your kiwi to bear fruit. Any male arguta is an ideal match for the Ken's Red female. One male plant is adequate to pollinate up to 8 female plants if it's centrally located. If planted in rows, a male can pollinate 3-4 females. Female plants produce fruit. Male plants do not produce fruit.
