Kiwi Fruit Falling Off Plant

My kiwi plant gets nice blossoms, but when the fruit starts to grow,  it either falls off the plant before it gets to the size of a pea or something is eating it. What would you suggest I do?

It sounds like the flowers are not being properly pollinated. Kiwi need both a male and female plant for proper pollination. If you only have a female plant, the fruit will fall as you describe.

If you have a male and female kiwi plant, and this is still happening, you may be having issues with pollinators being able to get at the flowers. These articles will help you with that:
