Michigan State Hardy Kiwi is a very hardy, strong and fast growing Kiwi plant. Most importantly this variety produces some of the largest hairless Kiwis of all the arguta varieties, which has earned it the nick name, “Jumbo Kiwi”. These Kiwis can grow to a whopping 1 ounce. Maybe that doesn’t seem so big compared to a hairy Kiwi, but these Kiwis you don’t even need to peel! This green to red fruits are delicious and easy to eat right off the vine.
In order to pollinate 6 to 8 female Kiwi plants one male Kiwi plant is required. We recommend to plant one of the following male varieties alongside your female Kiwi plants: Actinidia arguta ‘Weiki M’, Actinidia arguta ‘Meader’ or Actinidia arguta ‘Andrew’.
