CANADIAN Kiwi - Male Arguta
Arguta kiwis taste and look the same as Kolomikta kiwis but differ in other ways. Arguta fruit ripens mid Sept - mid Oct while Kolomikta fruit starts to ripen much earlier in mid Aug. Ripe Arguta kiwis hang for months on the vine while Kolomikta fruit falls when ripe. We have picked fresh Arguta kiwis for Xmas dinner...in perfect condition.....the fruit did not "freeze" or lose its taste after experiencing -20 C cold. Arguta kiwis, like the Kolomikta types survive - 40 C winters and have shown no disease or insect problems. One male Arguta can pollinate several females(up to 9).When pollinated, the females start fruiting in 4-5 yrs.
