I live in IN & hardy Kiwi sets on fruit every year but fruit drops off right after setting on. This has happened for 6 years. The plants sends out new vines all summer.

Kiwi plants are either male or female. You have a female and it is trying to set fruit but it can't unless the flowers are pollinated by a male kiwi. You'll need to plant a male kiwi in order for your female kiwi to set fruits and develop them to maturity.
