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.

Planting & Care

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

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Fuzzy 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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Fuzzy 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.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

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 Fuzzy Kiwi again after the transplant is complete.

I have 2 kiwi plants that I inherited when buying this property 2 years ago. They only grow leaves. How can I determine if I need a male or female to create fruit?
Heidi H on Jan 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You need a male and a female to produce fruit. To determine if you have a male or female you would actually need to see the flowers. Male's produce more flowers but female blossoms are generally twice as large and have a center pistil.
Will it fruit the year I buy it?
Britney M on Mar 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The condition trees from this company arrive in, it will take on average 24 months minimum of constant growth for it to be capable of bearing fruit. What I mean by that is the canes have to be thick and strong enough to actually bear the weight of the fruit. Whether it actually produces first year is totally unpredictable. You may want to prune it and prevent any attempt to fruit so it might a chance to grow strong roots and thick canes.
I also need a female... Do you sell those?

I am a 1st timer. Not much knowledge on plants and trees. Is it wise to plant fruit trees and kiwi around pine and walnut trees? We cleared a bunch of them in my back yard, so as to put fruit trees in their places. Any help is appreciated..
