Dumbarton Oaks Hardy Kiwi
What makes this sweet, heavy producing, hardy kiwi unique is that is ripens in September, a full month before Ananasnaja. The fruit is of medium size and somewhat ribbed, like a little green pumpkin. All Arguta females can be pollinized by our Hardy Male Kiwi. A selection from the elegant Dumbarton Oaks Estate in Washington D.C.'s Georgetown.
These fast growing beautiful vines produce clusters of oblong kiwis the size of large grapes Lacking the rough kiwi skin, these fruits can be eaten whole, like bunches of kiwi flavored seedless grapes. Originally brought to this country as an ornamental, the green fruit is similar to the fuzzy kiwi in flavor though sweeter and easier to eat. USDA Zones 5-9. The vines are very vigorous and productive and need a strong support. Select an arguta male for pollination.
