Hardy Kiwi

Actinidia arguta 'Prolific'

Like grape vines, kiwi vines need support. Start out by growing the vine vertically with stakes. The vine grows rapidly, between 10 and 20 feet per season, so it can quickly cover an arbor or a pergola. You can also build a 'T' shaped structure.

Plant in well-drained soil in full sun. Looks great and produces fruit; hardy kiwi is a perfect addition to the home garden as we transform our yards to be both useful and attractive.

Planting and Maintenance Info:

Light Requirements: Full Sun

Fruits will reach full-size by mid-season, but will not fully ripen until late in the growing season. They will keep longer if picked just slightly before fully ripe and refrigerated. Hardy Kiwi will ripen on a counter or windowsill.
