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. | Tommoz - Dural, NSW 07-Feb-2014

Kiwifruit - Bruno (female)

Caldwell, 1989 reported that Bruno require 750-950 hours of chill. | Tom - Dural, NSW 09-Feb-2014

Kiwifruit - Bruno (female) (Cutting) 5/10

Update: 291 days 3hrs

Comments: - 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 and especially hot winds. Need a great deal of water on hot days. Not a water-wise plant here. Doesn't like any alkalinity either - gets chlorosis readily. 
Needs some shade here and lots of sand improvement to increase it's water holding capacity.

Planted: 2014

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Balanced Acid lovers. Little and often during the growing season.
