Actinidia arguta var. cordifolia

Our Cordifolia is a female variety of arguta hardy kiwi that is prized for its especially sweet fruit, as compared to other hardy argutas. The fruit is roundish, the plant is very productive, and the bloom is early.

These fast-growing, beautiful female vines are exceptionally hardy (to -25F) and prefer afternoon shade in hot summer areas. They are smooth-textured, very vigorous and need solid support. Allow the vines 3-5 years to begin flowering and fruiting. Requires male hardy arguta or early-blooming fuzzy deliciosa for pollination.

USDA Zone: 5-9

Grow Height: 40' Long at Maturity

Ripening Time: end September

Ask a Question
  • How many years until it starts bearing. I heard the hardys can go without fruiting for the first ten years.

    The males can go roughly 7 years without flowering (though many start earlier), the females typically 5 years or so. Without the male however, the female will not fruit so that's the controlling factor.
