The kiwifruit is a vigorous vine with bold dark green textured foliage, attractive white flowers and delicious edible fruits in late summer to early winter. Vines are either male or female and both are needed to produce a crop of fruit. For best performance it should be grown in full sun in a deep well-drained soil and fed in spring and again after fruit is harvested.It should also be pruned after it has fruited, to keep the plant to a managable size. It likes a cool root run, so mulch well. It will grow to 9 metres high, and will need a strong supporting trellis to grow on as the plant gets heavy.
