Mine has flowered for the first time this year Homebird, exciting, isnt it. I have tiny green fruits showing now :-)

Thanks for showing us this HB. I haven't seen the flowers of kiwi fruit before. They're very pretty.

They are crossed Gralew..:o) I must go and see if there are any signs of fruit in the morning Dawnsaunt. I do hope there is.
They are pretty Ff. We had a few flowers last year but none produced fruit. Loads more flowers this year so our fingers are crossed for at least one fruit.....

All my flowers dropped this year with no fruit buds. Dawns aunt is lucky to have fruit, must find out if she has a so called self fertile or a male and female plant?

Sadly no fruit produced again this year. The plants are quite rampant so I'm going to cut it right back this autumn and see if that scares it into fruiting.....

Well, sadly guys, all my little fruits have vanished :-(

What a Shame Dawnsaunt. Mine never got to the little fruit stage.

Oh dear Homebird - lets hope we get better results next year then :-)

It's going to get a real trim this autumn as some of it is over 12 ft long.

Yours has grown well. Mine is in a big pot so hopefully restrained although I wouldnt mind it growing big as its under the pergola. I was hoping with the summer being good that it would fruit but alas .....

I wondered if it was the very hot weather followed by the cool and windy that made it drop it's flowers.

Not sure but after my little fruits appeared, the weather continued to be hot and sunny but having said that, the pot is in quite a sheltered corner of the pergola, probably not enough sun.
