Hardy Kiwis

Anonymous added on July 6, 2011 | Answered

I have a pair of male and female hardy vines. They grow like crazy, but have never flowered. Is there something I can do to induce flowering and fruit production?

If you are not getting any flowers, it may not be in enough light. In addition, it can take up to 6 years for kiwis to bloom, so they may not be mature enough yet. But just in case, I would provide them with a bit of phosphorus rich fertilizer to encourage blooming. Kiwis need a sunny location, sturdy support, and pruning to produce good crops. When planted, the vines should be pruned back to 4 or 5 buds.
