The Q&A Archives: Artic Kiwi

Question: I purchased two artic kiwi from one of your stores, and later found out that I need a male and a female in order to produce fruit. How do I know which one(s) I purchased? I did not notice and identification on the tag, or on the plants.
Thanks John

Answer: It's difficult to figure out which is which on kiwi's unless you closely inspect the flowers. Female Kiwi flowers have white filaments in the center of the flower; male flowers have a yellow center but no white filaments. Your plant should have the name 'Anna' (female) or 'Meader' (male) on the tag. If you no longer have the tags you may have to wait until they flower to be able to identify them. Wish I had more suggestions.
