Q.Hardy Kiwi

Anonymous added on May 28, 2011 | Answered

I have three kiwis that have been growing about ten years. They have been flowering for about 5 years. They bloom, then most of the blooms drop off, but there are a few that stay on, producing a small green berry (about 1/8 to 1/4 inch in diameter), which then drops off. What could the problem be?

You may need to prune your vines to improve their fruit production. Also, you could have poor pollination—ensure that there is a healthy male variety nearby. Some good male varieties include Tomuri, Atlas and Matua.
