Plant size: 3 litre pot.


Available for delivery: all year.

 

Kiwi fruit can be grown with ease in the UK provided they are grown against a south facing wall with maximum shelter from prevailing winds. They can crop very heavily outdoors in the south and are very useful for covering walls, fences and pergolas. When the growing conditions are favourable it is possible to harvest up to 13.6kg (30lb) of fruit from a single vine when fully established. Kiwi fruit are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants and when picked fresh from the vine, the fruits are deliciously sweet and have a much higher nutrient content than imported fruits. The vines are vigorous and require plenty of space. They should be planted 3-4.5m (10-15ft) apart. Our kiwi fruit plants are container grown and are available for despatch throughout the year.
