Kiwi growing problem

Zone Victoria, BC, Canada | Anonymous added on January 30, 2020 | Answered

I have a 7-8 year old plant that produced limited fruit in years 3-4 but none since then. I have been pruning it and tending to it but have noticed, in the past 3 years, that the male flowers bloom about 2-3 weeks after the female flowers, so I am not getting any pollination. Any ideas on what might be causing this? Thanks. J-G Nadeau

The male and female plants should be the same cultivar in order to bloom at the same time.
Be sure you are fertilizing properly as well as pruning at the right times. Here is more:
