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.
The Arctic Beauty kiwis' foliage is randomly variegated. Better still, it can be tri-colored, flashing colors of pink, white, and green. This unusual characteristic is clearly its outstanding feature (for the ornamental grower, at least).
Moreover, the white color in the leaves bears an interesting "frosty" appearance. The first time you see this plant in full color, you'll do a double-take, questioning whether the color is even natural!
Train it along a fence or on an arbor in an open, sunny area for a great privacy screen or for shade.
If you're growing for fruit, you'll need one male Arctic Kiwi vine to pollinate up to eight female Arctic Kiwi Vines.
Ready to harvest in late August. The grape-sized fruits can be collected a little green and allowed to ripen inside.
Eat these sweet, bright green kiwis like grapes. Its medium-size fruit is smooth and not fuzzy skinned, so you can pop one right in your mouth!
