Description - The 'Issai' is a hardy plant that is known for its bumper crops. It bears small, cup-shaped, fragrant white flowers followed by edible yellow-green smooth fruit. This mini kiwi variety is self-fertile, so does not need a companion to produce fruit.
Water well during the growing season. In hot, dry conditions it might be necessary to water 2 to 3 times a week during this period. Mulch around the base of the plant in late winter.
