Out of stock
  • Up to 6 potted trees may be combined in a single package, but cannot be combined with other items.
  • Not registered for sale in: HI, AK, PR
  • Sold out for the season. Available again in December 2015.


When placing your orders for potted tree/plants, please be aware that AS SOON as the potted trees/plants are available to ship (Dec. for trees, Jan. for plants), we will begin shipping IMMEDIATELY - no matter where you are located !!!

There are several factors why we must ship immediately:

  • We can only ship potted tree/plants items when they are dormant. With us being located in CA, trees/plants can come out of dormancy well before the rest of the nation is ready to plant.
  • We receive our potted tree/plants in successive deliveries. We need to move them out quickly, as our space is limited.
  • It is very challenging, if not impossible, to keep track of who gets what when dealing with ten's of thousands of trees/plants and 200 varieties over 3 months, hence we must adhere to our policy.


When your order arrives, you should remove it from the outside elements before nightfall. If you will not be present at the destination when the order will be delivered, you should either ship the order to another location or make sure someone will be there to take care of your order.

While your order is hardy enough to withstand freezing temperatures in its box, you definitely should not leave it outside in sub-zero temperatures for days on end.

AS IMPORTANTLY, you then need to open the box, remove the potted tree/plants from their shipping box, store them in a basement, cellar or garage, and keep them moist until you are able to plant them in the ground in Spring.

Actinidia deliciosa

  • Zones: 7-9
  • Chill Hours: 100-150
  • Looks: The female for the familiar, fuzzy skinned kiwi fruit is a woody vine. With large, heart-shaped, rounded leaves, creamy flowers in spring, and fuzzy fruits in summer, 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: Flavor is classic kiwi tartness with a hint of strawberry. This female vine produces medium-sized fruit of very good quality. Fruit develops better size if thinned. Vincent is one of the best varieties of traditional kiwi for low chill areas.
  • Facts of Note: Tender 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: This female vine needs the male Tomuri kiwi vine. 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.
