I don't normally do this (perhaps I should!) but I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the fruit bushes,etc. They arrived this morning and after undoing the excellent packing I was impressed with how strong and healthy the plants were. I have spent a very pleasant spring day heeling everything in. So thanks once again for your prompt and efficient service - I look forward to my first crop of soft fruit this summer and for many years to come!! Regards, Lynn Cadman

More compact in habit than other varieties of Baby Kiwi, 'Issai' also has the added benefit of being self fertile.
After flowering in June, small green fruits dotted white mature over the Summer ready for harvest late September / October.
Whilst the fruits are fairly small yield can be prolific - with a mature plant producing literally hundreds of fruits, and up to 1000 is not unusual. Smooth skinned, the fruits do not need peeling either.
