Kiwi plant  pic for Dotty Daisy (Actinidia deliciosa (Kiwi fruit))

This so called self fertile Kiwi plant (Actinidia) is along the front of the carport, and under, from the bungalow wall to the fence. There are about 30 clusters of 3 + flowers, never a fruit. The bees are in their element.

Dd, A slight scent. There is actually a bee on one flower in the photo. You might remember last year, I threatened to replace it with a Fig. I now have the fig. See if it takes the hint and fruits, but the flowers are gorgeous, only problem, you can walk under the car port and not look up to see them.

I grew a couple from seed which grew to around 8 ft of lovely furry leaves and nothing else, for years. Then I learned you have to have different ones to pollinate. I thought I'd quit while I was ahead!

Jenny and Issai are two varieties which are supposed to be self fertile, Thorney.

We have Jenny, and this is her third year, and no sign of flowers......

This plant must be over 15 years old, flowering for the last 5 probably.

Would be nicer with some of those 'green eggs'.

I was expecting it to fruit in its second year....

I think you would be very very lucky if it did, Dd.
