  • Botanical name: Actinidia deliciosa 'Jenny'
  • Common name: Kiwi fruit
  • Family: Actinidiaceae
  • Plant Type: Fruit

Kiwi is an attractive deciduous climbing plant, which works well as an ornamental plant. Egg-shaped, home-grown kiwis are delicious and rich in vitamin C. Plants are vigorous growers and thrive in a sheltered sunny position. Grow male and female cultivars to ensure good pollination, or opt for a self-fertile variety, if you’re short on space.
