The shiny green fruit is smooth skinned and the size of a table grape. When cut open it is identical to the traditional kiwifruit with it’s sweet emerald green flesh.
I have a male and female pair in pots waiting while we decide where they will fit best in our garden. Last summer I bought a punnet of the fruit to try. They were delicious so we need to get our plants established to enjoy our own fruit.
Habit – A fascinating plant with attractive glistening foliage turning a rich golden colour in autumn and going deciduous in winter with fragrant white flowers in spring. In the forests where it is native, it is a climbing vine (liana), sometimes climbing one hundred metres.
Size – Can grow several metres up structures 20-25m.
Pollination – Plants are supplied with one male and one female plant per pot, so will need to be purchased as a pair to pollination.
Harvest – February and March. It will take 3-4 years for this plant to fruit.
