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.

Plant Size
A baby plant, that is 3-8 inches tall, will arrive at your home in a 3-inch-deep pot. Then, raise your new baby to maturity under your caring, green thumb.

Fall/Winter Dormancy Period with No Leaves
In the winter, this plant generally loses its leaves and may arrive bare to you. Like hibernation, dormancy is an important part of the normal growing cycle when plants are strengthening their root systems instead of focusing on creating new growth. They are still healthy, viable plants that will begin growing new leaves in spring with more light and warmer temperatures during the day and night. ​Keep on the drier side during the winter and protect from extreme cold. While your plant may seem dead, it is not; we have watched the miracle of dormancy for more than 20 years in our nursery and have been thrilled each spring to see dormant plants bloom out and thrive at the end of their normal growing cycle of dormancy.

Dead Leaves?
A few leaves may die during shipping. No fear! It's still healthy and will grow new leaves. Trim old growth and repot into a larger pot to encourage new growth.
