Kiwiberry - Red Female - Grafted/Cutting

$29.00 ($24.90-$29.00 choose a size)

The name Hardy Kiwifruit comes from the fact that this species can tolerate very low winter temperatures and at the same time doesn't require a lot of winter chill, so can be grown over a wide climatic range. Pollinates with a regular male kiwi fruit. Hardy kiwifruits are smaller than normal Kiwifruit, an inch or so long. Fruits are borne in clusters and have smooth, edible skins so can be eaten just like grapes. The hardy kiwifruit has the same emerald-green interior and similar flavor to the grocery store kiwifruit, except that hardy kiwifruits are sweeter.

Kiwifruit - Waynes (female)

$29.00 ($24.75-$29.00 choose a size)

Selection from a Chinese variety found in a local market. The fruit has touches of red radiating from seed with golden flesh. Fruit large, hairless and sweet, low acidity. Very low chill. Looks promising for warmer subtropical areas as a backyard variety. A female vine

Kiwifruit - Male

My first male plant died too and my conclusion was lack of water - I see others have had this problem. I have given the female more water and it is looking healthy
