The Q&A Archives: Kiwi Plant

Question: We just purchased a Hardy Arctic Kiwi (Actinidia Arguta; product #HD21231) from Home Depot. We are going to purchase another one this week. How do we know if we have a male or female so when we purchase another one; we can get the opposite sex? We didn't see anything on the tag indicating gender. Thanks!

Answer: Unfortunately, you would not be able to tell just from looking at the plant, you would have to know the name of the variety. Please check with your store to see if they can tell you which variety it is. If it is "Issai" then it is self fruitful and does not require a pollinator. I'm sorry I can't be more specific for you.
