IMG_8150-1.jpegI’ve been trying to get fuzzy kiwi 🥝 to produce for almost 20 years now. There have been many setbacks due to lack of male plant or female plant maturity and plants just plain dying. I finally have eight fruits on my Vincent plant due to it blooming for the first time this year and hand pollination. My Anna hardy kiwi has a phenomenal amount of fruit on it. I don’t know how it was pollinated, the male is quite distant and had only a few blooms with poor overlap of bloom time. Usually I see the fruit aborting before reaching this size.

That's excellent.  Congratulations. My (which I didn't plant, it was already here) had a ton of male flowers , but no fruit, but it(or they hard to tell) is really healthy.

My hardy kiwi set fruit like never before as well.  I wonder if it's been drier this spring.

Mine bloomed like never before. I wonder if it was the cold winter that promoted more blooms.
