Plant Care – Actinidia arguta Ken’s Red Kiwi Fruit Tree
Light: Place your Actinidia arguta Ken’s Red Kiwi Fruit Tree outdoors where it can receive full sun while maintaining some shelter.
Water: Water your plant thoroughly to ensure that moisture reaches the deepest part of the roots. As the plant is situated outdoors, water the plant frequently and thoroughly, ensuring the soil is moist but not soaked.
Soil: The plant requires loamy soil that drains water well to thrive. Loamy soil is friable. It consists of sand, clay and humus (organic matter that is partially or entirely decomposed). The composition of loamy soil allows it to stay moist for the plant while not remaining soaked for root rot to occur.
Fertiliser: The plant will require little fertilising. Setting a thin layer of compost over the root area of your plant is all you will need to give your plant the nutrients it needs.
Humidity Requirement: Medium
Fun Facts about the Actinidia genus: Did you know? The Actinidia is a genus of woody plants and, with some being dioecious, native to temperate eastern Asia, occurring mainly in China, Korea and Japan. Some species grow in up to 6 metres tall shrubs, while other strong-growing vines can grow up to 30 metres in tree canopies.
The Actinidia arguta, also known as the hardy kiwi, is native to Korea, Japan, Northern China and the Russian Far East! It produces smaller kiwifruit, and unlike other species in the genus, the fruit comes without hair-like fibres.
