Originally from China, kiwis ripen in late summer and are rich in vitamin C. Vigorous, ornamental vines must be supported and can be grown over arbors, fences, or walls. Plant 10 feet apart in full sun in regular, well–drained garden soil. Mostly pest–free. Prune aggressively every year in the dormant season similarly to muscadine grapes. The plants are very frost tolerant in full dormancy, but can be damaged if a hard freeze occurs once the vine has started to break dormancy. It is recommended you wrap young vines in a frost blanket if a hard freeze is expected once the vine has started to break dormancy. Non–taxable. The vines are 1 year old, and will fruit 2–6 years after you plant them. The more fertilizer used, the longer it will take to fruit.
