Position: full sun
Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
Rate of growth: fast-growing
Flowering period: June
Flower colour: creamy-white
Other features: delicious, greenish-brown kiwi fruit
Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection) This is a self-fertile variety that produces both male and female creamy-white flowers, so it does not need a pollinating partner to produce delicious, greenish-brown kiwi fruit - perfect if there is only enough space for one fruiting plant. It is a vigorous, deciduous climber, which is best suited for training as an espalier against a warm, sheltered wall in a sunny spot.Garden care: Provide good support with a network of horizontal galvanised wires spaced at 30cm intervals and using raffia or garden twine tie in the plant, first vertically up a bamboo cane and then laterally, along the wires as it grows. It produces fruit on one year old wood, so you should aim to train pairs of lateral stems to develop permanent fruiting stems. When these exceed the alloted space, pinch out the tips and train a new leading shoot. It may take 3 or 4 years to start to producing fruits.
