Kiwi Vine (Actinidia Kolomikta) 20 seeds (#835)

This kiwi is a relatively fast-growing, deciduous, woody vine which typically grows 4,50 - 6 m (15-20') and features tiny, slightly fragrant, greenish-white flowers in early summer and attractive, heart-shaped, green foliage variegated with white and/or pink. Flowers are not particularly showy since they are often hidden by the foliage. Juvenile foliage is purplish green.
This species is dioecious (separate male and female plants), and the male plants reportedly have better leaf variegation than the female plants. Greenish-yellow, 2-3 cm (1") long, edible fruits appear on female plants in early fall.
Grow in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Best foliage color in light shade. Too much shade or excessive fertilization may diminish foliage color. Prune to control size. If growing at least in part for fruit production, plant one male for every three to four females. If growing only for ornamental foliage, consider planting only male plants.
