Michigan State Hardy Kiwi produces good sized fruit with excellent taste. Originated at Michigan State University. Fruits can weigh up to 1 oz each!
Vigorous, fast growing, twining vines must be trellised. We use hog panels or rebar panels as these are VERY strong and vigorous vines.
1 Male is needed for each 5 to 6 females.
Very insect and disease resistant. Ripens in September.
Hardy to -30 below zero. Zones 3-7
We highly recommend protecting your trees with a tree tube
Growing trees in the Northeast has proved challenging. One of our main struggles has been with deer and other tree nibbling predators.
Not only were our orchard trees being nibbled and rubbed, but now the deer/rabbits/porcupines/voles and more were heading towards our nursery stock.
I guess when you set out a buffet, the animals say ‘THANKS!’
We decided to purchase a few hundred TREE PRO Miracle Tree Tubes and were quickly sold on the benefits.
Trees that seemed to be stuck in their growth were now growing. We no longer had to constantly move electric fencing. Even trees in remote areas on the farm were thriving.
Where we had ordered them last year to offer to you, Tree Pro started selling them on Amazon (of course) and they are cheaper and offer FREE Shipping. We still highly recommend them!
