Issai Kiwi - Actinidia arguta Kens Red Hardy Female Kiwi - Actinidia arguta
Kiwi Issai fruit Issai has long fruits @ 1.5". Issai will produce one year after planting. Sets fruits without a male, but sets more with one. Not as vigorous as most arguta types, but similar in most respects. Less pruning required because of its early fruiting and spur type growth. May not be the best choice for Gulf states because soil conditions in summer can be too hot and too wet. Plant 8' apart on 6' trellis. Zones 6-9.

Kiwi Kens Red Fruit In Bowl Fruits turn red when ripe. Flesh is red, mild and very sweet. Since Ken's Red is a female be sure to order a male to insure fruit set. Low-chill variety. Can be grown successfully in Gulf states, where it ripens at the end of June. One of the largest hardy kiwis. Since it crops heavily, it has a tendency to alternate bear. Heavy bearing one year, little or no bearing the next. Space 10' to 15' apart on 6' tall trellis. Zones 6-9.
