Actinidia deliciosa 'Hayward' (Female)


Actinidia deliciosa 'Hayward' is the most commonly grown kiwi producing large, sweet fruit.

This is the species that brings you kiwifruit! Actinidia deliciosa is a large, rampant, deciduous vine that needs a structure or large tree to climb on and a lot of space in which to sprawl. It has brown fuzzy stems, large, rich green, heart-shaped, textured foliage, pure white fragrant flowers centred with masses of golden stamens and the fuzzy brown berries that we call kiwifruit. Full sun and rich soil are the best for fruit production though tolerant of part shade. 'Hayward' is the most commonly grown commercial variety producing large, sweet fruit. Plant a male clone to get fruit.
