The Arctic Kiwi is THE FRUIT OF THE FUTURE. Fruits are now being marketed and sold in produce stores. It has been accepted in the marketplace and demand will be growing in the very near future for the small delicious fruits.
These plants have been tested in New Hampshire and upper New York State where they survived 25ºF below zero temperatures! Kiwi plants are attractive growers that required a sunny location, preferably with wind protection. They can be grown in different types of soils; however, the soil must be well drained. The vines take very little maintenance–just pruning and support to hold about 100lbs of fruit for a mature plant. Plant 10 to 20 feet apart. Kiwi plants are very pretty when used to cover a wall or fence or used in landscape design. The fruit is very high in Vitamin C and its use in recipes is endless. The hardy Kiwis ripen in mid to late September.
