Actinidia delciosioa ‘Jenny’

Tasty Green, 100% organically grown fruit. This means that only plant and animal materials have been used during cultivation. The pot and label are made of recycled plastic and are therefore a clean solution for the environment.

‘Actinidia delciosioa Jenny’ is an easy and self-pollinating kiwi. The kiwi originates from China. In the beginning of the 20th century seeds were brought to New Zealand. When the kiwi became an important export product, the plant was named after the famous walking bird, the Kiwi. It is a fast-growing, swinging climbing plant and is best placed against a climbing frame, fence or pergola. The kiwi blooms in the months of May and June with white-pink flowers. The first ripe fruits will appear in early September. Bear in mind that it can take several years before the plant starts to produce fruit. In general, this takes three to five years. The fruits have a hairy skin, are oval in shape and have bright green flesh, with a white core and a ring of black seeds around this core. The kiwi is healthy and contains a lot of vitamin C. The kiwi plant survives well in our climate and is Hardy to -12° C. If the plant is not yet mature, it is best to cover it in winter when there is severe frost. The kiwi plant needs a warm and sunny spot. The more sun, the sweeter the fruit. A south-facing garden, out of the wind, is perfect. Pruning is best done in December or January. Prune back the new branches. The last-grown branches will bear fruit the following year. If you do not want the plant to grow too big, it is best to leave 40 centimetres of the newly formed branch.
