Baby Kiwi help

passiflorapond(9B)October 27, 2010

Hi,

Does anyone here have experience with Actinidia arguta? I ordered a couple of seed packets from tradewindsfruitstore and planted on the 14th of Oct. How long do they usually take to germinate? And does anyone have a picture of seedling identification? The seeds were so tiny, that I'm afraid I might mistake them for an errant weed!

How long from transplant to kiwi fruit?

Any special care or soil? Do they like fertilizer? Any help is appreciated. :)

Thanks

seedlings have roundish leaves (sometimes fuzzy themselves) color can be green to coppery. Germination is erratic for me (sadly).

Seedling to fruit is 5-7 years for me, here in Michigan. They don't care for wet feet (but then again what does) and damping off is a problem until the plants have a good root system developed.
