Issai hardy kiwi produces large crops of kiwis within 1-3 years of planting!  These fuzz-less kiwis are rectangular-shaped, about nickel-sized and very sweet and flavorful.  Leaves are smaller and more pointed than most kiwis.  Does well in KY and nearby areas.  Vigorous, disease-resistant vine. Hardy to about -25 F, pest and disease resistant. Beautiful white blooms and attractive foliage.  Needs a stout trellis, pergoda, deck or fence to climb on.  Yearly pruning ensures good growth and production.  Somewhat self fertile and will bear kiwis by itself, but a Hardy Male kiwi pollinating it increases yields.  Very resistant to insects, disease and cold.  Issai originated in Japan.  Will not grow in the heat of the Deep South (zones 8b-10).  Cannot ship to CA.
