I tried kiwi berries this year for the 1st time in my life and they were wonderful - but ridiculously expensive and difficult to find. So, we planted some berry bushes and these should go nicely with them. Also, they'll grow in a pot!

Will these grow in the northwest?
Cindy on Oct 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm currently growing these in zone 5 in Wisconsin. The first year growth was slow. This summer they took off! We had -10 temps last winter. I have two females and a male. No fruit yet, but expecting it next season.
I just bought a 6' X 7' wide arbor for this kiwi berry plant. Can I plant one female on each side of the arbor or is that too much? Thank you!
Bobbi B on Apr 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have a male and female Anna on a trellis just about the dimensions which you listed. I live in southeast Michigan zone 5b/6a and the growth is quite vigorous. You will need to prune them through the summer to keep them under control. Over time the vines will become quite heavy so make sure that your trellis is sturdy and won't rot. Incidentally, I just got my first handful kiwi berries last summer after 5 years. They were delicious when fully ripened. I'm hoping for a lot more this year. Even without the berries, I find that the red stemmed vines and waxy green leaves have a very nice lush tropical look and create a fantastic privacy fence. Finally, if your area has late frosts, be sure to protect the buds as they are very vulnerable to damage from low temperatures.
I have planted a male and female Anna Kiwi plants three years ago and planted together. I live in New York. No fruits until this time. Is it because, I planted them together?
Mundolil R on Jan 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If by "together" you mean you planted your vines in the same planting hole, they may be competing with one another. The recommended spacing for these vines is 8 to 10 feet apart to accommodate their mature spread without crowding.
for kiwi berries, if it can be grown in zone 5, which has a sub-zero, then why it need to be protected from frost?
Dennis L on Oct 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Frost protection is required to keep the buds/flowers from being killed, which means you'll have no fruit. They are cold-hardy in the ground.
What varieties of male kiwi plant would work to pollinate an Anna Kiwi vine? Would a 74-32. Male Variety work ? I have one of those that pollinates my Cordifolla kiwi females
T W on Mar 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The 74-32 male kiwi pollinator is still Actinidia arguta, and it sounds like it should bloom at the same time, so it can be used as a pollinator for Anna.
Will it not produce any fruit if there is not a pollinator plant? (Or does it just produce less?) How many feet of trellis would I need for each of the vines? Does the fruit store well (how long)?
Karen H on Mar 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As the Anna Hardy Kiwi is not self-pollinating, it requires the male pollinator for fruit production. Since the characteristics state it gets up to 12 feet wide, the trellis should be at least 12 feet long, and sturdy to support the weight of future fruit crops. I'd say the fruit stores as well as, and with a similar timing to, grapes. You can even put it in a dehydrator for longer-lasting dry snacks.

Anna Hardy Kiwi
I bought the Anna Hardy Kiwi & the Hardy Kiwi Pollinator at the same time. This is the second season for the planting. Both cover my arbor beautifully but neither has bloomed and/or fruited.
