Anyone Growing Kiwi in MN
I noticed at one of our parking lot nurseries that they are selling female and male kiwi vines. Is anyone growing kiwi? I would greatly appreciate hearing about your experience.
Based on initial web browsing, I know that you need both a male and female vine. (1) male can pollinate several female vines. The male vine leaves are much more attractive in color display. The fruits will not be the fuzzy, brown kiwi skinned that you buy in the grocery store but rather a thin green skinned that does not require removal before consumption. The northern hardy varieties have smaller fruit size. Also mentioned is that cats seem to be attracted to these vines and will munch on them.
