Hardy kiwi, Ken's Red Hardy Kiwi - Actinidia arguta 'Ken's Red' (latin)

Geographical origin: Asia.

Characteristics and uses:
This climber of the Kiwi family has everything going for it! In the spring, its fragrant blossom perfumes the garden. It is followed by an abundance of delicious small red fruits (the Kiwaï), which have a soft skin and a sweet flesh. The small fruits that you can harvest in the autumn have as much vitamin C as their bigger cousin, the kiwi.

As the red kiwaÏ is not self-fertile, it is recommended to plant it alongside another variety such as the 'Issai' hardy Kiwi.

Plant the Hardy Kiwi at the base of a chain-linked fence or along a wall on which you have placed a trellis, preferably on a pathway to enjoy its springtime fragrance and its autumnal fruits.

Plant them now: the shortest way to your plate is through your garden!
