I resurrected a thread by the same name that I started in 2008 and posted in it today, but I can't seem to find it on any of the first few pages of the GardenWeb so I'm starting a new one.
The link at the bottom is to the original 'Favorite Kiwi' thread. In that thread, a bunch of people had various varieties growing but didn't have fruit yet. I'm trying to check back in to see what people think after 4 years.
Below is my addition to that thread:
Anyone have any updates to this thread? (see link) It's been a few years now!
Last year was the first year I got any friut on my 4 females (Anna, Ken's Red, Dumbarton Oaks, and Cordifolia). Unfortunately, I didn't realize they were ripe when they were and lost a lot of them. I also didn't keep any tasting notes, but what I do recall was that they all tasted 'good' and none tasted 'bad'. There were some subtle differences, but nothing to make me say, 'this one is the best' or 'this one is the worst'.
Since I first planted them in 2008, there seems to be a bunch of new varieties out there. Has anyone grown:
I'm thinking of putting in 2 or 3 more and would like to get some that are the 'most different' from the ones I already have (ie different flavor, different ripening time, different look, etc).
So far I've zeroed in on Fifty Five because it's the earliest ripening one that I've found.
So, what are your thoughts and reviews and lessons learned in the last 4 years of Kiwi growing?
