Vincent Female Kiwi Vine – Low Chill Kiwi!
Even though sheâ€™s named Vincent, this is the female fuzzy kiwi looking for aÂ TomuriÂ male. Sheâ€™s a tasty egg-sized fruit, similar to what you are accustomed to buying in the grocery store. Bred for warmer climates, she requires only 100 chill units, and a growing season of 240 frost-free days to sweeten the fruit. Fruit set is most successful when the winter temperature drops below 32, and Vincent is hardy to 10-15 degrees when mature. Can be grown successfully in a large pot if trellised adequately. Harvest in October. UseÂ TomuriÂ maleÂ for cross pollination.

Fruitscaping with Kiwi Vines
You could not ask for a more exotic-looking plant to weave into your landscape than the kiwi. Throughout the late summer and fall months when most of the landscape loses its interest, the kiwi comes to life, as clusters of fuzzy fruit swell and turn to contrasting browns and reds amongst the deep green foliage.
The vineâ€™s large heart-shaped leaves offer excellent shade throughout the hot summer months. Create a cool summer retreat by building a lath-roofed arbor and gracefully twining the smooth-barked trunks around the pillars. Train the vines along the top rail of a fence to enjoy the cascading form in a colorful show of foliage and fruit.
The versatile kiwi can also be espaliered against a wall or even trained into small, graceful, weeping trees that look marvelous in large wooden tubs or on the border of your yard.
- Starter Fertilizer:Â Â Plant with Espoma Organic Bio-toneÂ® Starter Plus.Â This will increase root mass and help avoid transplant loss in difficult planting conditions.
- Fertilizer to Maintain:Â Â All of our Grape Vine Varieties work great with Espoma Organic Citrus-tone Fertilizer.
Weâ€™re so sorryâ€¦Â but due to agricultural restrictions we cannot ship any plants outside of the United States, or to the states ofÂ California, Hawaii and Alaska. Also,Â citrus trees cannot be shipped outside of the state of Florida.
Unpacking Your Plants Guide:Â Â Prior to receiving our plants, please click this link to read our Unpacking Your Plants GuideÂ to get to know the steps to keeping your plant healthy after receiving it.
We do NOT ship bare root: Â Our trees are shipped in the same exact containers they are grown in, for the most healthy transition. The plants are watered well before they are packed and wrapped in a shipping bag to ensure they stay moist during transit.Â It’s as if you came and picked them up right from our nursery yourself!
Why do we not offer free shipping? At Just Fruits, we price all of our plants online exactly as we do in the nursery. Therefore, the shipping cost is simply what it costs for us to get your order from the nursery to you. Many competitors may increase the plants’ prices in order to hide shipping costs… we do not do that. We want our customers to see exactly what the plant costs are, separate from what the shipping costs are. That way if you decided to come visit the nursery to pick up your plants instead, you would know how much you save in shipping.
Weather Watching:Â Â We now ship all year round! However, we do watch for extreme weather. If there is extremely cold or hot weather expected around your shipment date and on your path of shipment, we will contact you and notify you that we plan to hold the shipment for the next possible shipping date with better conditions. If you ask us to still ship it, through the conditions, we will not be responsible for any damage caused to the plant & UPS will not refund any claims. We love our plants, and do not want to see them die, so we would rather wait until itâ€™s the right time to ship it, than risk losing a plant in transit.
