'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
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.
