Actinidia deliciosa

Zones: 7-9

Chill Hours: 100-150

Looks: The pollinator for the familiar, fuzzy skinned kiwi fruit is a woody vine. With large, heart-shaped, rounded leaves and some creamy flowers in spring, this is an ornamental as well as edible plant. It needs the support of a trellis or can be trained on heavy wire as an espalier.

Personality: This male vine does not produce fruit.

Facts of Note: Kiwi vines can take off and grow up to 30', so be sure you have a sturdy trellis or system of wires to support them. Plant in full sun or part-shade, with weekly irrigation (more in hot spells) and fertile, well-drained soil. Hardy to 10-15F. Best fruit appears if there is a winter chill below 32° F.

Pollination: Tomuri is the male vine that pollinates the female vine, Vincent. If grown in the center of a group of Vincent vines, 1 Tomuri can pollinate up to 8 Vincents. If you are growing the tender kiwi vines in a line, then plant 1 Tomuri after 3 or 4 Vincents in a row.
