Height: 20-40' vining
Zones: 7-9

 

Planting Instructions
Approx seeds per order 30

Soak seeds in a cool water for 24-48 hours to increase germination results. After soaking, wrap the seeds in a damp paper towel. Put the paper towel in a plastic bag and place the bag in a warm, sunny location, like a window sill. Germination may take awhile, possibly up to 10 weeks, so be patient! Every week, replace the paper towels with new, clean, moistened ones. This is to prevent mold from developing. When small greenish-white sprouts begin to appear, the kiwis are ready to be planted in soil.

Plant sprouts in a seed starting potting soil. Keep the soil slightly damp and never soggy. Do not over-water them. Place in a warm, bright location.

As the seedlings grow, transplant them to larger pots once they outgrow the one they're in. If your climate is amenable, transplant vines outside once they reach 3-4 feet. Otherwise, keep them indoors in a warm, sunny location. It will only grow as tall as the potting container allows.

Kiwi plants require a male and female to pollinate and fruit. It is impossible to determine which gender seeds are before planting. If you intend to grow fruit, plant all the seeds to increase the odds of pollination. Only the females produce fruit. One male tree can pollinate dozens of female trees. A female tree will produce fruit at around 3 years old, in a warm, Mediterranean-like environment.
