Reasonable postage and prices.
Wanted since our 3 year old plants never produce.
So?
Want to plant near them 2 new plants.

Hello,

it looks like you are living in the US.
Actinidia arguta are easy to get in the US.
For example from here:
https://www.rollingrivernursery.com/products/52/fruiting-vines/hardy-kiwis-actinidia-arguta

I recommend you the 'Ken's Red' variety.
Best taste of all Actinidia arguta I tried so far.

Pamper the fresh planted Kiwis with plenty ( I used 25 cm high) of good organic much and you may also get fruits in 2 years (I was in USDA Zone 7b).

Pittsburgh is in USDA Zone 6a. So, Asimina triloba, Mulberry and Figs ('Round de Bordeaux'; maximum pre-grown in a 60 litre root maker pot) may be your best crops for this zone.
