Kiwi male/female identification

Zone North West province in South Africa | Dennissmith added on November 23, 2013 | Answered

I have Kiwi plants from seeds I have 4 plants for my backyard, as kiwis take some time for production. How can I identify male from female? It appears that nurseries can identify them and mark them in coloured pots. Can you help me?

Thanks
Dennis

There is no really obvious way to tell until they blossom. The nursery knows, because kiwis are propagated from cuttings. Cuttings from known male plants will become male plants and cuttings from female plants will become female plants.
