Kiwi Magic™ Hardy Kiwi Combination
Hardy Vine Produces Sweet Kiwi Fruit
If you're looking to add a bit of sweetness and personality to your garden, look no further! The Kiwi Magic™ Hardy Kiwi Combination (Actinidia arguta male, Actinidia arguta 'Issai' female) vines will add wonder and a sense of fantasy to your garden.
What makes the Kiwi Magic™ Hardy Kiwi Combination magic? Well, this plant is actually two plants: a male and a female. They're potted together so you don't have to worry about how to pollinate it. This makes this super fertile vine combination produce tons of lovely hardy Kiwi fruit in the late summer.
So, what's the difference between a fuzzy Kiwi fruit like you see at the store (which are produced by a related, but different species), and the hardy fruit produced by this pretty vine?
This vine produces petite Kiwi fruit which are smooth and thin-skinned, and they are about the size of a grape. Cut, they'll still look like the fresh green fruit you are used to, with a cute circle of little seeds. They are called Dessert Kiwis.
With a name like that, you might have guessed that Hardy Kiwi fruit is sweeter and less acidic than traditional Kiwis. This makes them a better snack for kids!
Hardy Kiwi fruit is also an excellent source for vitamins C and E, along with a hefty dose of magnesium and potassium. These treats are healthy, sweet and very pretty on the plate.
The vines are cold hardy to Zone 4, which seems like magic to us! Imagine growing a tropical fruit like Kiwi in areas where you'd never grow a regular, fuzzy Kiwi fruit like you'd see at the store.
This plant comes alive with unique white flowers in the late spring and early summer. The Kiwi Magic™ Hardy Kiwi Combination's genus was named for its lovely radiating style of flowers. These petite flowers have six simple petals with a center speckled with black.
If you have a sturdy gazebo, pergola or bare fence, this magical vine will easily grow to cover it, adding life, excitement, and useful edible fruit. The reddish stems, heart-shaped green leaves and sweet hardy fruit add a tropical flair to your landscape.
Pick them just before they are fully ripe and refrigerate until needed for snacks or recipes. Pull out what you need and ripen them up on your countertop or in a sunny window. Use them in smoothies, as a topping for fruit pizza, or fresh as a healthy snack. They are nicknamed Cocktail Kiwis, so serve a bowl at your next get-together as an appetizer.
