Sometimes known as the 'Hardy Kiwi' (as they can stand temperatures as low as -25°C (-13°F) these tough plants are also known as the 'Baby Kiwi', 'Cocktail Kiwi' or 'Kiwi Berry'.

Developed in New Zealand by crossing Actinidia arguta cordifolia and Actinidia melanandra it resulted in this dark red fruited variety - both the skin and flesh. This really is a variety to grow in full sun - as the more sun the plant has the darker red the fruits are

Fruits are fairly large and almost cylindrical, tapering to a point. Another benefit of this variety is that after picking the fruits continue to stay firm and do not bruise that easily, making it perfect for those who want to sell or short term store.

  • Harvest late September / October.
  • Can stand temperatures as low as -25°C (-13°F).
  • Compact in habit - climbing (with support) to around 12 feet (3.65 metres) tall - but can of course be controlled with pruning.
  • Female - requires a male variety such as 'Weiki' to pollinate it and thus produce fruits (plant one male to every seven females).
  • 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.
