Male (Pollination) Kiwi

Sale Priced

Male (Pollination) Kiwi

Our cold hardy strain is a big improvement over the fuzzy, brown-skinned Kiwi. This rare Kiwi is a much sweeter tasting fruit. Grows much further north than the regular Kiwi. Fruits average about 3/4-1 1/2'' in diameter. Tastes somewhat like a tangy combination of strawberries and pineapple. Fruit will keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 months. The hardy Kiwi is somewhat similar to the grape vine, only much faster growing. Under ideal growing conditions it will grow up to 5'' a day --- and reach a height of 8' the very first year! It will quickly climb a trellis or wall. Its thick mass of bright green leaves will soon cover ugly service areas, stumps, even old buildings. Then in late May, lovely white, camellia-like flowers will appear to fill the air with a fragrant lily-of-the-valley scent. NOTE: Be sure to plant a male Kiwi with at least every 5 females for proper pollination. Complete growing instructions included with order.Plant male within 200'-300' of any females.

I bought a male kiwi and two females they didn't look real good when I got them but I tried to nurse them back to health the females are struggling along have not grown at all in the past month and these are very fast growing plants. The male plant is dead so I have no way of pollinating the females if they make it. Try to get a hold of burgess does not seem possible. Don't buy these plans
