Haven't seen any red Keewee's around here. Scott, so the yellow and green Keewee's can store exactly the same or is there a shelflife difference at all?
I've been to all the local places that sell plants over several days, and I couldn't find any matching Keewee's. I thought there might of been a run on them or something. Then I figured it out: in green, Haywood is only male, and crossed pollinated by Tomlin which is only female.
Golden King is also called Rocky which is only male, but it pollinates both "Yellow Kiwi" and "Apple kiwi".
So in short, there's just three fruits (but 5 kiwi plant types): green Hayward; yellow kiwi; and yellow apple shaped kiwi .
This wasn't indicated clearly, and my Japanese isn't that great, so it was very confusing.
By the way, here's that Apple Kiwi I'm talking about:
I believe it said it's 18 or 19 brix, and it starts producing fruit year 3 on, and ripens earlier than Hayward.
Today I bought a pair of the green ones. We have a golden one established in the garden from last year, but not sure if it's a male or female, I guess we'll wait till flowers. I'd like to try the gold ones too, but space is getting limited.
