I have 2 Kiwi vines which I bought from H.D. as a mated pair. They are about 5-7 years old. They bloom but never set any fruit. I would like fruit. What should I do?

Your plants are certainly old enough to produce fruit so I wonder if you actually have a male and a female or if you have two males or two females. The only way to tell is to inspect the flowers. Female flowers have white filaments in the center of the flower; male flowers have a yellow center. Here's a website with close-up photos of male and female flowers. Perhaps you can compare the flowers on your two plants to these. Hope it solves the mystery! (You may have to copy and paste the following address into your browser's address line)
