Kiwi - Actinidia arguta Ken's Red - Female
This kiwi (as are all the hardy kiwis) is smooth skinned and grows in bunches. Fruit are about the size of large gapes or about 1 inch across. Red skin and red flesh that is sweeter than typical kiwis. Very prolific.
The Kiwis are dioecious (male and female plants). Each bid for this item is for one plant. Please order two or more plants so that we can send you at least one female plant (Ken's Red) and one male (Male Hardy). 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. (Unless you specify differently, on orders of 2-5 plants one will be male. Orders of 6-10 plants, two will be males, etc. If you would like a different ratio, please let us know.) The female plants produce fruit. The male plants do not produce fruit. Low chill variety that is hardy in colder areas.
