Plant Details

Kiwi Fruit can be grown in the UK and makes an excellent climber, with white flowers in May and June, followed by the edible fruits later in the year. It has large, attractive green leaves, which turn red in autumn so it is an excellent choice to cover an unsightly object in the garden.

If you are growing for the fruit alone, the best results are gained from growing against a frame in full sun. They are not fussy about soil type and will grow in light or heavy soil. 

These plants have been grown from seed harvested from self-fertile (hermaphrodite) plants so only one plant should be necessary for fruit to form.

Height: 7m

Full hardy in the UK.

Common name(s): Kiwi Fruit; Chinese Gooseberry.

All our plants are supplied established in pots. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
