Self Fertile Kiwi - Actinidia chinensis

Characteristics and uses: The varieties ‘Jenny’ and 'Solo' are self-fertilising, meaning that it is not necessary to plant male and females in order to obtain fruits. The creamy white flowers in June and July leave in their place edible fruits called kiwis in the autumn. The fruits of these varieties are small and sweet.
The kiwi is a vigorous creeper which can be used in the garden to great benefit because it doesn’t cling to the surface. A sufficiently strong structure should be used to support new shoots and fruits.
In order to protect from cold winds, this plant can be trained as an espalier against a south-facing wall. Pruning should be done in winter up to February/March and similarly to a vine, that is to say two or three eyes above the last fruit.
