Kiwiberry

Kiwiberry - Red Female - Grafted

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.

Hardy Kiwifruit

I first saw kiwi-berries being grown 15 yrs ago, in the heavy-snow zone of New Jersey (USA). Growers used 1.6-m tall, overhead arbours to grow the vines on: the berries dangle, so this saved the fruit from sunburn, and made harvests much easier. -- | Beth Schoenberg - Kambah, ACT 13-Apr-2009

Hardy Kiwifruit

The Hardy Kiwi (Actinidia.Arguta) are not related to the Gooseberry (Genus Ribes). They were called "Chinese Gooseberry" by early fruit explorers because of their similarity in size, color and taste (juicy, sweet, tart) to the more familiar Gooseberry. | Ron Strilaeff - Dallas , GA 07-May-2009

Supposed to be partially self-fertile. Would be good to hear from others how true this is. | Tom - Dural, NSW 01-May-2013

Hardy Kiwifruit

Bought a Kiwi-berry plant about a year ago from flower power. Currently has two little fruits on it so yes it is self pollinating. Don't know if the fruit seeds are viable for planting. | Charles - Sydney, NSW 20-Jan-2016
