Jenny Fuzzy Kiwi
Finally a self-fertile fuzzy kiwi! Jenny doesn’t need the help of any male kiwi to help her set fruit, and now you can harvest fuzzy kiwi fruits from a single vine. Perfect for the backyard grower who is short on space or only has room for one vine.
Jenny will also set heavier crops if paired with a male fuzzy kiwi. And as far as we can tell it does not produce enough viable pollen to be a reliable pollinator for other female kiwis.
