growing kiwi from seed

jfguchiApril 27, 2010

I was wondering if anyone has been successful in growing kiwi vines from seed? I've got some I'm planning on trying, but would like to know more. Anything to help.

Thanks!

I've grown the kind you get from the grocery store, the green and gold varieties. They are easy to grow but I gave all of them away after the first year since they aren't cold hardy and have no idea how they did afterwards. I don't know if the cold hardy varieties are as easy to grow from seed or if they need a chilling period. You need both male and female plants for fruit production.

I just cleaned the pulp from the seeds and pressed them into moist potting mix. I covered the pot and kept it warm. The seeds germinated fairly quickly. I transplanted to individual pots when they had a couple sets of true leaves.
