I think they can take a mild freeze but the early sring freezes kill the blossoms.. I won't atest to that . That is hearsay. There are HARDY kiwi plants (hardy to Z3!) and maybe NON hardy vines. They like rich dirt and moisture so that is why I stay away from them.

I found this read below that explains a lot. growing might be one thing, getting fruit might be another.

Here is a link that might be useful: Care and types of Kiwi vine.
