The fast-growing, climbing vine is very hardy, and is capable of surviving slow temperature drops to -34 C (-30 F), although young shoots can be vulnerable to frost in the spring. This vine needs a strong (vines are heavy) support structure on which to grow such as a trellis, arbor, patio overhead, fence or wall.

Japanese Kiwi cultivar Issai begins fruiting the second year - no pollinator needed! Compact enough to grow in a container. It brings the beauty and flavor of kiwifruit to your garden without the giant size. This mini-Kiwi has a restrained habit, needs no pollinator, and sets the most delicious miniature fruit. In the garden or even in containers, you will find it easy and rewarding.
This deciduous vine is much less vigorous than other varieties - it grows easily but won't take over the garden. A twining climber, it offers glossy foliage, fragrant 1-inch white blooms in early summer, and a generous harvest of 1- to 1 3/4-inch fruit in mid-fall.
Issai has a really remarkable flavor, much sweeter and more succulent than the fuzzy kiwis found in most stores. The fruit is smooth, green, and just a little soft when fully ripe.
Best of all, Issai is self-fertile, so you need plant only one. It thrives in full sun to partial shade, and prefers good soil on the acidic side. Do not fertilize this vine too heavily; this can trigger lush foliage growth but poor flowering and fruiting.
It fruits somewhat late, making it a great choice for southern climates as well. You simply cannot go wrong with this delightful mini Kiwi! Zones 4-9.
