This is the only self fertile cultivar of Kiwi around as it does the existance of a male and a female plant! Jenny is a mostly-female fuzzy kiwi, bearing fruits with with nice shape, sweetness and flavour. Kiwi Jenny will make more fruits if paired with a male fuzzy kiwi... but not everybody wants more fruits! Kiwi vines usually produce a lot and they can become rather large, so many people with small plots, will enjoy keeping just one and not two of them.
Here in Canarius we offer a potted plant, grown in peatmoss or coconut fiber.

The Canary Islands are located in the subtropical belt, but the term subtropical really makes sense only for the areas at low altitude. If we give a look to mid or high elevations, we will find a Mediterranean to Temperate climate, with possible snowfalls in winter above 1200 m elevation. Therefore, temperate fruits and berries, like apples or raspberries, can grow quite well in this land of mangos and bananas. Some local traditional cultivars of temperate trees are only found in the Canaries, such as many fig trees, peaches, apricots and more. Some of these are low-chill varieties, that require less cold for their growth. They can take hard frost such as their relatives but they can still set good fruits in Mediterranean to Subtropical areas.
