Properties and uses:
The pulp of this kiwi has a colour different from that of the famous green kiwi, but it has the same amount of vitamins C, is sweeter and less acid. The fruits are between 5 and 8 cm long, they are a clear bronze colour, and the pulp is yellow. They are ripe around November.

Yellow pulp kiwi 'Golden Kiwi' : non self-fertile female cultivar, it is recommended to plant another cultivar nearby, such as kiwaï 'Issai' or kiwi 'Solo' or kiwi 'Jenny'.

The kiwi is a vigorous climbing plant which can be used in the garden, but needs a sufficiently strong structure to support new shoots and fruits, because it doesn't cling to the surface.
In order to be protected from cold winds, this plant can be trained as an espalier against a south-facing wall. Pruning should be done in winter, in February or March. Prune as you would do for a vine, that is to say two or three eyes above the last fruit.

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