Saanichton Fuzzy Kiwi
Similar to the fuzzy kiwi that you buy in the store. However, it is more winter hardy (to about 5 degrees F) and it is successfully grown from California to as far north as Vancouver, Canada, since it ripens a couple of weeks before the variety Hayward. It is a large sweet fruit, heavily productive and easy to peel. Fuzzy female kiwis must be pollinized by the Male Fuzzy Kiwi.
