The above order has just arrived. All the plants are in very good condition-Thank you. I have, over the years, become used to plants arriving badly damaged from other suppliers, generally because they were not packed properly-these were packed very well. Again thank you.

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.

There has been some, limited research to indicate that even though the Issai is self fertile, having a Weiki can increase yield.  This isn't something that we have tried and tested but may well do!

  • Harvest late September / October.
  • Can stand temperatures as low as -25C (-13F).
  • Compact in habit - climbing (with support) to around 12 feet (3.65 metres) tall - but can of course be controlled with pruning.
  • Self fertile (but will not pollinate other female varieties).
  • Top Tips
  • Kiwis prefer a full sun position - the more you can give them the better.
  • Whilst they will grow in alkali soils, Kiwis prefer an acid soil (pH 5-6.5).
  • Whilst a moist soil is essential, Kiwis do not like to be waterlogged so avoid heavy or poorly drained soils.
  • Growth can be rapid even in the first year - so ensure you are well prepared with suitable supports such as trellis or horizontal wires at 12" (30 cm) spacings.
  • If planting more than one, allow a spacing of 16 feet (4.8 metres) between plants.
