Kiwis
Actinidia spp.
Unique, attractive and ornamental vines, Kiwis are native to Asia and Eastern Russia. Easy to grow and free of pests and diseases, Kiwis produce abundant crops of delicious and nutritious fruit. In addition to the familiar, fuzzy brown Kiwi, we offer other species of Kiwi, which are not so well known to American gardeners and consumers. All Species of Kiwi require a male and female plant for cross-pollination and fruit production.
