Kiwi Seed Shelf Life

vegannaturegirlNovember 18, 2012

Hi everyone! I'm relatively new to the seed saving game and have a couple questions about kiwi seeds.

How long can kiwi seeds be stored for? And can you get both male and female plants from seeds taken from the same fruit?

Thank you all for your help! :-)

Kiwi like many fruits need to be stored in the fruit until ready to sow. When ready to sow, you have to put them in potting mix in the fridge for like 3-4 months and then leave out at room temp. They are a pain to try to germinate. In my opinion, this is one plant that is better left to buy a start of. If you want to try anyway, you would get a mix of male and female seedlings.

Thank you so much for the information, Remy. It's a good thing I learned this before I started saving them! :-)
