Kiwi 'Vincent' produces excellent tasting, medium sized fuzzy kiwi's! 'Vincent' & 'Tomuri' make a excellent pairing in low chill areas & performs good up to zone 7. These fuzzy kiwi's both have attractive fuzzy green looking foliage.

Actinidia deliciosa 'Vincent' (Female) (Kiwi Fruit) - A vigorous-growing, deciduous vine with large rounded leaves on stems that can spread to 30 feet wide. The creamy white flowers in spring age to buff and are followed by tasty egg shaped fuzzy-skinned fruit in fall. The cultivar 'Vincent' is a fruiting (female) kiwi vine that has a low chill requirement. It needs a male cultivar to pollinate the spring flowers and we grow the male cultivar 'Tomuri' for this purpose. One male plant can pollinate up to 8 female plants if centrally located. Plant 1 male to every 3-4 females if planting along a fence. Plant in full sun or partial shade with regular irrigation. Hardy to around 10-15° F (Sunset zones 4-9, 12, 14-24, 29-31 of USDA 8-10) and fruits best when winter temperatures drop to below 32° F. Our plants produced from tissue culture by Monrovia Nursery. This plant is also called the Chinese Goosebery. It gained the more common name Kiwi Fruit through the great marketing efforts of New Zealand farmers who first popularized this fruit. Farmers in New Zealand had been growing the plant since the early part of the 20th century but only after renaming it "Kiwi fruit" in 1962 did it get international attention. This description is based on our research and our observations of this plant growing in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We always appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or have additional cultural tips that would aid others growing Actinidia 'Vincent' (Female)
