Issai Hardy Kiwi is a fuzzless, small, fruit can be eaten like a grape without peeling. Very high in Vitamin C. New growth tender to frost, but recovers quickly. 800 chill hours needed. Self-fruitful. Kiwi vines are 1-2 feet in height when shipped. Important planting tip: Planting depth must be where roots flair out. Do not plant any deeper they will not survive.
Hardy Kiwi -Actinidia arguta
Hardy to -25 degrees Fahrenheit. Vine is vigorous, leaves are smaller than the fuzzy Kiwi. Fruit is smooth, thin skinned (can be eaten like a grape), and lime green inside. Both kiwis are pest-free, long-lived and fruit keeps very well. Both fuzzy and hardy kiwis need well drained soil to survive.
