KIWIBERRY 'ISSAI'

KIWIBERRY 'ISSAI'

Actinidia arguta 'Issai'
Member $9.95
We love this little garden treasure at Diggers, it's the perfect home garden fruit. It tastes gorgeous with bite-sized, zesty gems but it's far too delicate to make it into the grocers. A self-pollinating little kiwifruit with hairless, grape size fruit. Perfect for a small backyard where there's no room to plant two plants for pollination. In southern climates, provide afternoon shade and protect from summer northerly winds. First fruit in 2-3 years, full cropping 4-5years.
