    Yes you can plant Kiwi in Louisiana. You need at least one male which can pollinate several female plants. (Sounds like the boasts of a friend of mine).
    Improve your soil before planting with compost. General purpose slow release natural fertilizer is best.

    Did you know that Kiwi is also called Chinese gooseberry and is native to that country. It is used in Chinese medicine to eliminate internal heat and relieve thirst. (And you thought a cold beer would cool you down on a hot summer day after working in the garden, try Kiwi juice.) It has powerful antioxidant properties including high Vit C.
