A small, green to purple skinned fruit similar to kiwifruit. Often sweeter than the kiwifruit, hardy kiwifruit can be eaten whole and need not be peeled. The skin is smooth and leathery providing a deceiving contrast to the fuzzy, brown exterior of its larger sibling fruits. Plant 3 or more to increase your chances of getting both male and female plants for pollination.

Question & Answer
Just wondering how I will be able to tell the sex? From: REDCLIFFE QLD
When they flower in a few years time you can tell. The males will produce male flowers with pollen laden stamens and the female trees will have female flowers with ovules inside.
Hi, I notice the kiwiberry needs another plant to cross pollinate. Can this just be another kiwiberry or does it need to be a different plant? From: BROADVIEW SA
Under pollination it says male and female so you need to have at least 2 to get pollination but you only know what sex they are a year or so later when they flower. Therefore it is best to get 3 or 4 to increase your chances.
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
