Your kiwi vines look beautiful! So strong and healthy! You said they are 3 years old. Will you get fruit this year? Can you tell us what kind of kiwi they are. I was thinking about getting some kiwi. I've read there are a few that are cold hardy that would do well in my zone 8b. Doesn't spring just put a great big smile on your face. My peas are now sprouting ... and I can't stop smiling!!
Thanks for the kind comments ! I'm really enjoying growing these.
They had flower buds last year ( at 2yrs old ) but a late frost killed them. I might have gone a little overboard on the amount I spent to protect them from the frost this year, but this has been a fun experiment for me and I'll get to use the plastic over and over. I'm in zone 7B-8A.
These are not the cold hardy kiwi. I think they are Actinidia chinensis. 8B should be perfect for the fuzzy kiwi !
I know growing from the seeds may get something different than the parent so we'll have to see . :) I dont know which ones are male and which ones are female yet. I'm hoping that I get fruit this year. It looks like there may be thousands of flower buds on the vines and not all of the leaf buds are open. If I get fruit this year, I'll try to root some cuttings of the best ones.
