Hayward Fuzzy Kiwi
Actinidia deliciosa 'Hayward'
The grocery store standard fuzzy kiwi. Hayward is a female vine that grows hundreds of large, juicy, delicious fruits each year. The fuzzy vines are long, robust growers that create a luxurious tropical feel wherever they are planted. Make sure to provide a very sturdy trellis for these quick-growing perennial vines! Fruit can be harvested at maturity, before fully ripe, and kept cool or refrigerated, where they can be selectively ripened and enjoyed for up to 6 months!
