Actinidia, or Hardy Kiwi, prefers dry soil and will tolerate full sun to partial shade. For every nine female plants you plant, be sure to plant at least one male. The vines produce small white flowers in the early summer, followed by the greenish-yellow fruits in the late summer and into the fall. Be sure to provide support for the large vine and prune regularly, cutting back non-flowering parts. To harvest the Kiwifruit, wait until the late autumn.
