Vibrant Green Flesh, Full of Tropical Flavors

Fuzzy Kiwis are an extremely popular fuzzy kiwi variety, celebrated for their rich tropical flavors. Once you pick your fresh homegrown kiwis and peel the brown fuzzy skin to reveal the bright, vibrant green skin you will be hooked.

Kiwi flesh is soft and rewarding to bite into because it’s filled with sweet, tropical juice that tastes like a sweet orange, pineapple, and strawberry all combined into one irresistible fruit. Tiny black seeds in the flesh provide a delectable crunch that leaves people wanting more and more. 

By eating Fuzzy Kiwis, you will be boosting your health and snacking at the same time, because kiwis have tons of health benefits, like having 10 times the vitamin C as lemons, and tons of antioxidants.

Don’t rush to the store to buy over priced fruit, because Fuzzy kiwi vines are considered to be the easiest kiwi varieties to grow. When you purchase both a male and female plant for pollination you will have large kiwi harvests providing all of the kiwis you’ve ever wanted, plus more.

The Heyward Kiwi’s fragrant white flowers will delight you in the early summer around May, before growing into delicious kiwis that will ready to be harvested in the fall around mid October.

If planted in the ground Heyward Kiwi vines can spread along fences and fill in the gaps with lush foliage, creating a living privacy screen. However, kiwi vines also grow extremely well in containers and are easy to keep small and maintain, indoors and out.

If you live above growing zone 7 simply bring your kiwi vines indoors once the weather starts to get cold, and place it by a sunny window. With a little water they’ll thrive.

Heyward Kiwi Vines are one of the most popular kiwi varieties in the country, so they sell out fast. Be sure to order yours today, before they are all gone.

Planted Kiwi per instructions. I planted the two Kiwis the day I received them. Right now the vine looks ok bur the frost killed all the leaves. I will have to wait until spring and see if they start vining. I hope they do but its a wait and see planting. I don't know if I can recommend the item or not. Lets hope so. See you in the spring.

Thriving plants
The kiwi plants arrived soon after I ordered them and they were in excellent shape. They have been in the ground for about a month and are located in full sun. My kiwi plants are thriving in our hot, humid Louisiana climate.

First time planting kiwi
I ordered two, a male and female. The latter was healthy looking with good leaf grow. The former was wilted and looked dried out but I trimmed it back to a bare stem before planting it and it’s growing new shoots and I’m looking forward to next year and hopefully some fruit.
I’m very happy with my purchase.

Arrived in good shape with many solid leaves. I am planting in heat of Oklahoma summer, so it will have a disadvantage. Irrigation is with dedicated drippers and I have installed shakes to protect from middle of the day and afternoon scorching temperatures. Will see how they do.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Fuzzy Kiwi

Fuzzy Kiwi Planting Diretions

Fuzzy kiwi plants (Actinidia deliciosa 'Hayward') are one of the easiest to grow, and most hardy varieties available. These fast growing plants reach a mature height/width of 20-30 feet, produce gorgeous flowers and succulent fruit. The male and female plants cross pollinate and produce fruit that is packed with vitamins and antioxidants. These plants are recommended for USDA growing zones 7-10 and perform best in full and partial sunlight.

Location: Place your plants in an area with well draining soil, that preferably gets morning sun and afternoon shade. Though kiwi plants prefer full to partial sun, young plants cannot tolerate scorching heat. Keep this in mind when choosing your location. In order to get fruit, you will need to plant both a female and male for cross pollination. Male and female flowers are grown on separate plants. Male plants will flower often but will not produce fruit.

Planting Instructions: Place them about 10-20 feet apart in a sunny location with well draining soil. One male plant can pollinate up to 8 female plants, but you will need one female for each male plant you have.

1) Dig your hole three times as wide and just as deep as the root ball on the kiwi.
2) Carefully separate the roots of your kiwi by gently combing the root ball with your hands and position them downward in the hole.
3) Backfill the planting area and tamp down lightly on the soil as you go to avoid any air pockets from forming.
4) Mulching the area will help conserve moisture in the soil and keep competing growth at bay.

Watering: Kiwi plants need watered deeply and regularly the first year they are planted. This is most important during periods of drought. Never allow the soil to completely dry out. Browning and dropping of the leaves is a good indication of the plant not receiving enough water. Adding mulch around the plant will help it retain moisture. The best type of mulch to use for kiwi plants is straw or manure.

Fertilization: Kiwi plants are hungry plants and require heavy nitrogen to thrive; especially during the growing season. Ideal fertilization times are in early March and then again in early summer. You can also fertilize in the fall. However; late year fertilization can enhance the fruit size but hasten the ripening process, which later can cause the fruit to store poorly.

Pruning: You should definitely prune your Fuzzy Kiwi annually. This helps increase fruit production. Pruning should mainly be done to encourage growth, shape the plant and allow air and sunlight penetration.

Female plants: You can remove any shoots that are less fruit producing. Since Kiwis are typically grown on a trellis, once the vine reaches the very top of the trellis prune it back some to help train the vine.

Leave room for two buds near the top of the plant to grow. You can tie them loosely with planter’s tape to help support them, but allow them the room to grow. As the plant ages, continue to prune lateral shoots and allow the trunk to grow.

Male plants: Prune the flowering shoots down after the plant blooms. This can be done anywhere between 40-60 cm in length depending on the size of the plant. Ensure when you do this that mostly green growth is remaining on the shoots.

Pests: The wonderful thing about growing kiwi plants is they are virtually free of pest and fungal issues. Your plant may begin giving off a scent similar to “Cat Nip” as a result, cats find this plant attractive and will rub against the shoots. This can be problematic for young shoots and could cause damage. This is also makes the plant attractive to deer and gophers eating the leaves of the plant and in some cases the fruit. You can place protective fencing or netting around the plants as a protective measure.

If you have several plants growing in the same area this will also make them a target of scale and garden snails. They like to feed on the foliage. You can use an insecticidal soap or Neem Oil to treat any insect issues.

Which is the difference between female and the male kiwi plant..?
Adelita L on Aug 22, 2018
I live in houston, it does get below zero few days a year. Do I have to bring the plant inside during winter?
Jithin J on Jul 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I live in San Antonio. I planted them in the ground and they have come back every year.
I don’t understand what it means by purchasing a male and a female? Do I need both? Do they get planted together? Is this a tree or a vine?
Rose V on Oct 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You will need to plant both withing a few feet of each other if you want them to produce fruit. It will take a couple of years for them to be big enough to start blooming flowers that will in turn produce fruit. They are vines and should be set up to climb something together and intertwine for best results.
How long before it bares fruit?
Loni L on Jan 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: My kiwi trees looked good the first year and did not come back second year.
Does Kiwi wine right or left. I ask this because I have a grapevine that grows to the left of my gazebo and I needed it to twine the other way. Does it matter with Kiwis?
CYNTHIA C on Jan 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I do not believe it matters with Kiwis. I have two large containers in my back yard where I have Kiwi vines. One container is on my back deck next to my green house, one is farther back in my yard next to a cedar arbor. The vines wrap around their supports from the left, and they lean to the left as they grow but I believe that is a function of their orientation of my yard - they are following a path where there is more sun. Providing you have adequate sun, and want to twine to the right you could train the vine with the proper supports and ties.
What time of year should you plant these?
Nadia L on Dec 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I planted mine in the spring, and they have grown very well.
Does the pollination pack include male and female plants?
Vanessa S on Dec 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does.
