Removed. It didn't get enough chill here to flower reliably - even though Bruno needs far less chill than Hayward and should have been ok here. I actually prefer the Kiwiberries anyway.Large vines that need a very strong trellis and resent hot weather ...

Kiwifruit - Bruno (female)

Bruno does NOT have a 'relatively low chill requirement.' According to Phivnil et al. (2004) Bruno achieves 35% bud-break at 600 chill hours and 81% at 800 chill hours. Even Hayward manages 60% budbreak at 600 chill hours.
