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.

This plant goes into dormancy in the fall and winter, so your plant may not have leaves when it arrives but it's still alive and well. In cooler weather, plants go dormant to conserve energy so they're ready to emerge lush and verdant in the spring.
