KIWIFRUIT

Botanical Name: Actinidia deliciosa
Description

Kiwifruits grow on a vigorous and long lived deciduous vine.  Kiwifruit is a great tasting, highly nutritious treat. To eat, cut the fruit in half, then scoop the delicious flesh right out of the skin.  They can be added to fruit salads and desserts as well as to savoury dishes, they go particularly well with avocado's, fish, chicken and prawns.  They do not however combine well with yogurt as there is an enzyme in it that they react to.

Kiwifruit Gold Seedling

Seed selected from a very sweet yellow fruited variety. We have found these seedlings to flower within 3 years from seed and exhibit low chilling requirements They will not come true to type but may be worth experimenting with to see if you can come up with your own special selection. Remember they are dioecious and hence seedlings may be male or female. They also make an excellent rootstock for grafting Kiwifruit varieties onto.

Hardy Kiwi Fruit

Kiwiberry Seedling

A small, green to purple skinned fruit similar to kiwifruit. Often sweeter than the kiwifruit, hardy kiwifruit can be eaten whole and need not be peeled. The skin is smooth and leathery providing a deceiving contrast to the fuzzy, brown exterior of its larger sibling fruits.

Kiwiberry - Red Female - cutting

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.
