Kiwi Fruit

Kiwifruit can be grown successfully in the UK so long as you have plenty of space and a sunny spot. Despite the ‘kiwi’ name suggesting they come from New Zealand, they are actually from southern China originally. Nowadays most kiwifruit sold in the UK comes from Italy.

For advice on growing kiwi fruit see our Grow Your Own Kiwi Fruit guide.

Kiwi : Hardy Kiwi

These kiwifruit are delicious eaten hole and don't need to be peeled! The fruits are generally green, with very thin 'fuzzless' skin and are the size of grapes. Cut open, they look much like regular kiwifruit with small black seeds, emerald green flesh with the typical 'rayed' pattern. Hardy kiwifruits are generally sweeter than regular varieties with sugar levels ranging from 14% (as with regular kiwifruit) to 29%.

Kiwi : Hayward & Tomouri

Hayward is one of the best traditional varieties to grow in the UK, because it flowers later in the season and produces a heavy crop of large fruits with superb flavour. Hayward is a self sterile female plant so it must be planted next to a male plant to provide pollen in order to produce fruit.
