Actinidia 'Issai' Kiwi is hardy, very resilient and a vigorous vine which grows in a flash and produces flavorful fruits only a year after planting. The fruits are green and very sweet and while they are smaller than grocery store varieties they are no less tasty or useful. They lack the brown fuzz of their cousins and their vines are blessedly thornless so you can harvest them without worry of getting pricked.

Actinidia 'Issai' Kiwi is self-pollinating and requires much less pruning than other varieties. Best of all it's very weather-proof and is quite tolerant of heat, humidity, and disease so not only will you get delicious fruit but also it is low maintenance. Imagine having these sweet fruits at you fingertips, in your own backyard, at anytime. Use them as a healthy snack or in a fruit salad. You can grow these treats with little effort with 'Issai.'

Actinidia 'Issai' Kiwi is a self-fertile variety. One plant produces both male and female flowers (monoecious), making growing hardy kiwi a breeze.
