You don't need a second plant to harvest the smaller kiwi variety 'Jenny' (Actinidia 'Jenny') – one alone is enough to harvest the furry little fruits like in the land of milk and honey, because Jenny is self-fertile.

Description

Kiwifruits with their hairy-brown skin always look very exotic. However, even in this country it is easily possible to harvest your own Kiwis. Kiwi plants are fast-growing climbers and very hardy plants. They should be grown on a horizontal trellis, so that the fruits are in the shade and thus ripen best. Actinidia deliciosa should be planted every 3 to 4 m in slighly acidic soil (pH 4.5 - 5.5) and kept continuously damp. In contrast to usual Actinidia deliciosa varieties, ‘Jenny’ produces male, female and hermaphrodite flowers on one plant, so that with this variety only one plant is required to guarantee an annual harvest. The fruits are the size of an egg, very aromatic and -typical to Kiwis- hairy. As other varieties, ‘Jenny’ is very hardy (-20 °C).
