Fuzzy Kiwi Bundle
Selected in New Zealand, the Hayward Fuzzy Kiwi has become the most popular variety for home gardens and commercial production. Hayward is prized for its large size, attractive shape, delicious flavor and its abundant crops.
Saanichton Fuzzy Kiwi is a superior Canadian variety that has proven itself a heavy producer of large, sweet and flavorful fruit. Saanichton ripens somewhat earlier than Hayward and being a bit more hardy, Saanichton is a good choice for cooler regions.
Chosen for its long bloom period, our Male Fuzzy Kiwi variety is an excellent pollinator for our female varieties. It will pollinate up to 8 female plants and also makes a spectacular, ornamental vine. Male fuzzy kiwi plants do not bear fruit.
