Planting & Care

Harvest in late Fall. Kiwi fruit ripens best off the vine. Pick the fruit any time before the winter freeze and store cold. When brought to room temperature, the fruit will ripen. Kiwis need a long, frost-free growing season. Kiwis need rich, well-drained soil and large volumes of water during the growing season. The vines can tolerate part shade but prefer a sunny location where they can ramble up to 30' across a substantial trellis. Kiwi vines are vigorous growers and require agressive pruning to control growth. A "fuzzy" female kiwi plant (Saanichton) must be grown Matua with for fruit set.
