kiwi – actinidia deliciosa

15 May

kiwi 005There are two kiwi vines, one growing on each side of the pergola.  They’ve been here for at least six years and, although one was tagged male and the other female (necessary to produce fruit), fruits never have gotten larger than the size of small olives.  This could be the result of mis-tagging at the garden center, unfortunately a not uncommon problem.  The flowers are pretty but a little hard to see because they grow on the bottom sides of the leaves.  kiwi 007
