Product Description

The Hardy Arctic Kiwi is THE FRUIT OF THE FUTURE. Fruits are now being marketed and sold in produce stores. It has been accepted in the marketplace and the demand will be growing in the very near future for the small delicious fruits. The Hardy Kiwi, are native to the mountains and hills of southwestern China where they grow wild in trees and on bushes. The Hardy Kiwi was introduced to the United Kingdom, Europe, United States, and New Zealand between 1900 to 1910 from China. Commercial plantings were made in New Zealand about 1930 and have become widespread over the last 20-30 years. These plants have been tested in New Hampshire and upper New York State where they survived 25 degrees F below zero temperatures! Kiwi plants are attractive growers that require a sunny location, preferably with wind protection. They can be grown in different types of soils; however, the soil must be well drained. The vines take very little maintenance-just pruning and support to hold about 100 lbs. of fruit for a mature plant. Plant 10 to 20 ft. apart. They are hardy in zones 4-9. Kiwi plants are very pretty when used to cover a wall or fence or used in landscape design. The fruit is very high in Vitamin C and its use in recipes is endless. The hardy Kiwis ripen in mid to late September. Growing instructions included with each order. Female Plant: Actinidia arguta Ken's Red. Named for the late New Zealand horticulturist Ken Nobbs, who created this unique variety, Ken's Red bears good crops of very large, sweet, and tasty fruit. A cross of two species of Hardy Kiwi, Ken's Red fruit has reddish purple skin and flesh. Use Meader Male Kiwi as a pollinator. One male vine can pollinate several female vines.

    This was my first order with Hirts. I am very pleased with the turnaround time, the ordering experience, the follow up emails on the status of my order, and especially the quality of the plants I ordered. The hardy kiwi plants arrived well packaged, well hydrated, very healthy, and ready to get in the ground. I am eager to see them grow!
