Three years ago I purchased this smooth skin Kiwi, Actinidia arguta 'Issai'. It is a self fruiting hardy kiwi that is not as invasive as the regular kiwi's. Being smooth skinned the fruit is eaten whole, no need to skin them first.
|The deciduous leaves are a third the size of regular Kiwi|
|If that is a flower bud then I should see fruit this year|
|If you click on the photo the scrawny onion sets are more visible. Last year I planted them in rows in the garden and the crows pulled them all up twice before giving up on the game. So unless they can unlock the gate my onions should be safe.|
