ISO golden kiwi vine.

If you or someone you know is selling a female golden kiwi (and male maybe too / I'm not sure if my green male kiwi would pollinate it), please please let me know!

You can grow kiwi from seeds. It's not too difficult.

I think the seeds need to be freshly taken out of a fruit though.

I grew some under artificial light, in a container covered over by clear plastic to prevent the soil from drying out.

They actually grow very fast.

The only downside is that growing by seed you have a 50% chance it will turn out to be a male or female, which still isn't too bad since you will need a male to pollinate the female to get fruit.


Supposedly golden kiwi is just a little bit less hardy than regular kiwi, but I know they can survive through a normal winter in zone 8a.
