Issai kiwi pollinaters

fruity123(7b)May 22, 2014

I have a issai kiwi and although it is said to be self fertile, many people have not had success growing only one. My local nursery sells actinidia kolomikta and I'm wondering if this can pollinate issai kiwi.

The kolomitka blooms far to early to pollinate the issai. You will need a male arguta variety such as "Meader". Tyler

Is there any other variety except Meader? I looked for
Meader all over my local nurseries and I could not find one.

Flowercloud is supposed to be a perfect partner to Issai. I bought mine from Burnt Ridge, but One Green World also offers it.
