Grown for its attractive foliage and edible fruit, Issai Kiwi (Hardy Kiwi Vine) is a compact, deciduous climber that produces grape-sized, smooth skinned, green fruits in late summer to early fall. While they are smaller than grocery store kiwi, they are slightly sweeter and have an excellent flavour. This kiwi cultivar is self pollinating and does not need a companion to produce fruit. Pleasantly scented flowers are borne during early summer. They are not particularly showy since they are often hidden by the foliage of broad-ovate deep green leaves. Fast growing, this kiwi vine requires much less pruning than the species due to its limited growth habit. Tolerant of heat, humidity and disease resistant, it is a rewarding plant with handsome foliage all summer long. Delicious fruits and no serious pest issues.
