‘Jenny’ is one of only a few self-fertile kiwi varieties available. Red tipped, heart shaped foliage is accompanied by small white flowers in the summer. The delicious fruits are ready to be harvested in late summer to autumn, each one being approximately the size of a hen egg. It will produce fruit around 3 years after planting.
Very vigorous deciduous climber, which needs a sheltered, sunny spot. Perfect for any arch or arbour in your garden, as the furry clusters of fruit hang beautifully. Ideal to grow in a large greenhouse due it its size, but it can be pruned to keep its vigorous nature in check.
Buying Fruit Trees/Bushes from Jacksons Nurseries
Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.
Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
