Full description and specifications

Kiwi - Actinidia arguta 'Ken's Red' is a female variety, resistant to negative temperatures of -25 degrees Celsius. It needs a male pollinator such as Actinidia arguta 'Weiki' .
The fruits have a smooth skin, which makes them directly consumable, even with the skin still on them. Unlike Actinidia arguta 'Issai', the fruit is slightly larger, having a size of approx. 4 cm and turns spectacularly red-violet when the plant grows in direct sunlight.

Although they are smaller in size compared to commercial varieties, the fruits compensate for their abundance, taste and appearance - the yield is quite high and the growth is quite compact for a kiwi. The taste is sweet, strongly aromatic, and the fruit has good resistance - it does not become soft.

Kiwi can be harvested starting in September. This variety produces the first fruits, usually in the first years after planting.

Cultivation recommendations: Cultivated on trellises/arches/fences, like a vine. We recommend you choose an area sheltered from the wind, preferably next to a wall/fence with southern exposure. Kiwi 'Ken's Red' appreciates heat and direct sun. The first cuts can be made 2 years after planting, at the end of winter or immediately after harvesting.

It does not require special soil (but prefers slightly acidic soil) and is resistant to diseases and pests, being naturally considered "pest free".

Height with pots included: approx. 60 cm. It varies depending on the season.
Pot size: 2 liters (D15cm)

Note: in the cold season, the plants are in vegetative rest, shortened and sold without leaves.
