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.
Arctic Beauty Kiwi
This beautiful vine is the hardiest of all the Kiwi species. Its unique, light and airy foliage is splashed in the spring with green, white, and pink variegation and is followed in late summer by delicious, sweet and fuzzless fruit. Male plants are especially colorful and are often planted alone for their ornamental value. Less vigorous than thse Hardy or Fuzzy Kiwi, Arctic Beauty Kiwi likes some shade and is happy covering the north side of a fence, wall, arbor or trellis. Arctic Beauty is hardy to minus 40°F.
A good pollinator for our female Arctic Beauty varieties, this beautiful vine features strikingly colorful foliage. One Pasha™ Male plant can pollinate up to 8 female plants. Male Kiwi plants do not bear fruit.
September Sun™ produces good crops of large, sweet and flavorful fruit and is also prized for its colorful foliage.
