Kiwi vines are a special addition to the garden. Very hardy, vigorous, twining climbers with highly ornamental leaves and flowers. An excellent variety to cover walls or stumps. All varieties are self fertile. Egg shaped, brown, furry fruits that are high in vitamin C. They definitely show off their beauty when the inner flesh is sliced. Inside the greenish-brown skin, kiwi fruits have an interesting pattern. A tasty snack, and can be used in many popular desserts like fruit salads and pavlova.
They need plenty of space for growth and a sheltered, sunny position. In summer, prune out the branches to encourage fruiting for the following year. It’s a very important commercial crop in New Zealand, hence why they’re known as Kiwi vines.
