growing a ten year old Issai Kiwi zone 5
once I learned to prune it the past five years have had more blossoms but when the fruit gets about pea size they all fall off
even with netting so don't think its birds or animals
starting to blossom now, this year more than ever but afraid the same thing will happen

any ideas

Are you sure it is an issai? I am in zone5a and it dies to the ground every year. All my other kiwi varieties so long as the male is in bloom produce lots of fruit.You might need a pollinator.

Hope you don't mind if I hijack this post a bit... can you give some advice on growing Hardy Kiwi's. I have two female vines and a male vine. THey are Actinidia arguta's I have trellised them. They are 2 years old. I know I have a few more years to go but is there anything else I should do for them other than keep them fertilized, weeded, etc.?
