The tangy, fresh taste of kiwi is indescribable! Our Arctic Kiwis produce a smaller fruit with all the great flavor of its bigger cousins.
Delicate little clusters of fragrant white flowers appear in early spring. Dense, heart-shaped foliage spreads through the growing season.
Train it along a fence or on an arbor in an open, sunny area for a great privacy screen or for shade.
Ready to harvest in late August. The grape-sized fruits can be collected a little green and allowed to ripen inside.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your ISSAI Arctic Kiwi.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your ISSAI Arctic Kiwi gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your ISSAI Arctic Kiwi again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
