Actinidia deliciosa ‘Male Fuzzy’
It should be noted that regardless of the type of kiwi selected for your garden, a male variety must always be planted with female selections for proper pollination and fruiting. Matua and Tomuri are often the male varieties used to pollinate Blake and Elmwood and other green fuzzy kiwi. In general one male plant is needed for each nine females. Tomuri appears to be the preferred pollinator. We have labeled our pollinator as ‘Male Fuzzy”. The male plant does not produce fruit. It requires 600 to 800 chilling hours. Plant in full sun in well drained moist soil. Hardy in zones 7-9. Plants are shipped in 1 gallon containers.
