Actinidia deliciosa 'Tomuri' (Male) (Kiwi Fruit) - A vigorous-growing, deciduous vine with large rounded leaves on stems that can spread to 30 feet wide. The creamy white flowers in spring age to buff. The cultivar 'Tomuri' is the pollinator for female cultivar 'Vincent', a fruitning (female) kiwi vine that has a low chill requirement. One male plant can pollinate up to 8 female plants if centrally located. Plant 1 male to every 3-4 females if planting along a fence. Plant in full sun or partial shade with regular irrigation. Hardy to around 10-15 F and fruits best when winter temperatures drop to below 32 F. Our plants produced from tissue culture by Monrovia Nursery. This plant is also called the Chinese Goosebery and gained the more common name Kiwi Fruit through the great marketing efforts of New Zealand farmers who first popularized this fruit.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Actinidia 'Tomuri' (Male).
