Kiwi - Issai

This hardy self-fertile Chinese gooseberry produces small smooth edible green fruits that do not need peeling, delicious fresh off the vine or in fruit salads. Needs a sunny sheltered spot to crop well, and a pergola or fence to climb along. A lovely vine to shade a terrace or patio.

Season: September - October

Approximate Size: typically 3-4m (10-13ft), though supported shoots can reach 8m (25ft) in length.
