The kiwis have grown since I took the last pic. This is the female. The Male is doing great on the other side. I hope for a few flowers still. Nothing yet tho. 5.11.2020

In a few weeks the area behind me should transform. This has made a little bit of a living room feel down here in the garden area. And I need to start some lupin for back in this magical area 😘😘 @ShelleySnyder @cyndi

It's ready for the kiwis. Starting to bud up nicely. Scroll back to see the actual plants, which are hard to see planted at back posts

That will look nice. Have you gotten any kiwis yet? I just bought a supposedly self-fertile one, but I think they told me I have to wait a few years before any fruit is to be expected. I hope my little climber will prove them wrong.

I planted a male and female 3 years ago in what i thought was a safe, temporary spot. Bob doesn't want to move them so he dug post holes next to them (through some maple tree roots). They are the hardy variety. Very long now...18 ft probably @emve

No kiwi's again this year. I wonder if they're waiting on us to build their permanent arbor 🥝 June 14, 2019 #female on left #male on right #kiwi

Some trees/vines take up to 5 years to fruit but I know nothing about growing Kiwi. You've got both sexes so maybe they just need time to mature🤔

I might be rushing it. The conditions are fine for kiwi so I'm being patient 🙃🧐😉😁 @gjones

I don't know when, but yes. These have been slow. It's their 3rd spring here and they're just vining now. They're not hurrying for us. Xoxo @rachelbrooks

Do you know what variety you have. Only the Issai type is self pollinating. All other varieties require both male and female plants.

comment
columbiariver

It's a female. So I'll need a male kiwi? I've not educated myself. It will not pollinate with any other fruit vine or tree? @gjones

Sorry, it will only pollinate with another male kiwi

I will have to go back and get one. Both were available. Thank you very much @gjones

Ooh, I've always wanted one of these but don't have space for two. The exception would be if a neighbor has them they'll pollinate, but I know that's highly unlikely.

I hear they get huge @franshinegee. I'll have to find a place with enough light, but far enough away from the house that we have room for two. Look what I've gotten into now. Lol! It will be fun/work.

If I don't get a male before the ground freezes will she be ok by herself? I'm going to plant her "in the boonies" / "north forty" today and hope the critters leave her alone this winter @gjones @KariSamuel @franshinegee.
