Qty:

A male variety of kiwi, that will act as a pollinator for female kiwis and loves to climb.  One male kiwi plant can pollinate up to 8 female ones, please note the male kiwi will not fruit, just produce the pretty flowers which the females need to produce fruit.

Atlas produces cream white flowers with golden stamens and light fragrance; red/brown stems with green heart shaped leaves. Please note that whilst these plants are hardy once they are established they are still tender in the Spring as they wake up from dormancy and early (or odd later) frosts should be avoided if possible, therefore a sheltered position when planting is advised. Kiwis are insect pollinated so if you decide to grow them indoors you will need to hand pollinate. Kiwis do not like to grow in wet conditions (so the edge of a patio that is regularly washed is not ideal, we know as this is how we killed our first one!)

Also known as Chinese gooseberry vine with it's origin being in Asia. Previously the botanical name was Actinidia chinensis but this has been changed more recently to Actinidia deliciosa.

  • Decidous climber.
  • Hardy to approximately -7°C (19°F).
  • Requires support to climb on (such as wires).
  • Reaches 13 - 20 feet (4 - 6 metres).
  • Loves a sheltered yet sunny position.
  • Requires free draining soil.
  • Flowers early Summer.

Recognised to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
