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 | Ian Almond - Mount Kembla, NSW 13-Apr-2016

Very vigorous! You could very nearly watch him and see him growing! Make sure that you keep him under control. He doesn't have to be enormous to get his job done.

I would like to try grafting a female to him and get double bang for my pot space but I don't know anyone with a female vine. Anyone in Newcastle willing to offer me  a piece next time they prune?

Spring 2011: No flowers this year. Very cross! I got flowers on the kiwiberry but nothing on the male. I am thinking that I will graft a piece of her onto him next year and maybe her hormones will encourage him to flower at the right time? Admitedly he might not be a dud, he might justbe too young?

Kiwi fruit vines look truly lovely in spring and summer, with their layers of fresh green leaves. Mine is climbing up an old Hills Hoist. I have the male and the female planted together (of course) and was delighted to see two flowers for the first time this year.
