Question & Answer

Hi, Could you tell me, do I need a male and female kiwiberry plant/seedling for these to grow, or will they produce fruit from just purchasing two of these regular kiwiberry seedlings? What would you suggest I purchase to ensure fruit? Thankyou. Louise From: ALBURY NSW

the seedling Kiwiberry can be either male or female, 50/50 chance of either. As we dont have a specific male Kiwiberry at present, I would suggest maybe purchasing a Female Kiwiberry and 2 or 3 seedlings to ensure you may get a male. #KiwiberrySeedling2248 #Kiwiberry3354

Kiwiberry - Issai (Cutting) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 168 days 22hrs

Comments: - The fruit is lovely and so far has not had fruit fly strike. The birds don't notice it either. I find our homegrown fruits sweeter than the shop bought fruit - perhaps because it's not picked as early. It's a very vigorous deciduous vine and likes to twine around things. Needs a sturdy trellis. Doesn't not like hot winds and needs plenty of water in summer. Does not tolerate our hot summer sun so our vines are planted facing east and/or under some shade. They get morning sun only and have a cool root-run. They don't like alkalinity - either in the soil, the water or the fertilisers.
They are self fertile but it's helpful to have more than one vine, or a male kiwifruit vine that flowers simultaneously, for increased fruit.
