The Q&A Archives: Kiwi Seeds?

Question: Is it possible to start kiwi plants from seed?

Answer: I'm afraid the seeds in kiwifruit are not viable and will not sprout. Another fruit with sterile seeds is the banana. Kiwis are propagated by cuttings and you must have a male plant for every 4 female plants for fruit to set. If you really want to grow kiwifruit, be sure to purchase both a male and a female plant.
