Kiwifruits with their hairy-brown skin always look very exotic. However, even in this country it is easily possible to harvest your own Kiwis. Kiwi plants are fast-growing climbers and very hardy plants. They should be grown on a horizontal trellis, so that the fruits are in the shade and thus ripen best. Actinidia deliciosa should be planted every 3 to 4 m in slighly acidic soil (pH 4.5 - 5.5) and kept continuously damp. In contrast to usual Actinidia deliciosa varieties, ‘Jenny’ produces male, female and hermaphrodite flowers on one plant, so that with this variety only one plant is required to guarantee an annual harvest. The fruits are the size of an egg, very aromatic and -typical to Kiwis- hairy. As other varieties, ‘Jenny’ is very hardy (-20 °C).
Quality: vitamin-packed fruits from own harvest; cream-coloured flowers; fast-growing climber giving shade and visual cover; hardy garden-plant; easy to winter as container plant (unheated & dark)
Use: planted in the garden (no winter protection necessary); in large pots from April to October/ November outside on balcony, terrace and in the garden- during winter in an unheated winter quarter; all year in an unheated greenhouse
