Kiwi fruit


I have a have a kiwi plant, it was my birthday present. I have liked the idea of having a kiwi plant since last year when I read about a new verity that had been bred to better suit our climate, the down side is that it’s fruit are the size of grapes which isn’t very big.

My kiwi is a ‘Jenny’, this verity is “A self fertile variety avoiding the need to grow male and female forms for a successful crop of fruit. Ideal for growing through trellis work or against a sunny wall, where it can be supported and trained. It’s creamy white flowers have a delightful rose-like fragrance with fruits being ready for picking from late summer.”

I don’t really know much about growing them, so if anyone has one or has any tips then please share them with me!
