Hardy Kiwi Vine

More information from the Ohio State University


Planting & Fertilizing
Plant vines 10' apart in well-drained, fertile soil. At planting time and again at the end of the growing season fertilize with a product like Miracle-Gro. Begin in the second year to fertilize twice per year with a gallon of solution per vine.

Pollination
Male and female flowers which open in late May are produced on separate plants so both are required for pollination, except in the case of Issai Hardy Kiwi which is self pollinating. One male will serve as pollinator for 8 females when planted within 100' of each other.

Pruning
Once established, a kiwi vine must be pruned throughout its lifetime to maintain form, size and maximize fruit production. Both summer and winter (dormant) pruning are necessary. In summer remove suckers growing from the base when they are just a few inches long. Throughout the growing season thin out non-fruiting branches to reduce dense shading of the fruit.

Harvesting
Hardy Kiwi, which usually begin bearing the second or third growing season, are fuzzless. They can be popped into the mouth and eaten whole. To test for ripeness pick a fruit, allow it to soften for a few days then try it for flavor.
