I live in the Philippines and would love to grow my own kiwi fruit, will they grow here?
Any suggestions please? Norman
I've actually no idea what the climate is like in the Philippines, but I imagine it to be tropical or subtropical. I think kiwis prefer places with a higher rainfall, so if you have that, plus heat, you should be OK. Give it a try and see
Kiwifruit can grow wherever citrus fruits, almonds and peaches grows. This Hardy Kiwifruit withstands sub-zero temperatures after dormancy. Kiwi plant can survive anywhere because it grows almost like a weed. Plant kiwifruit seeds in the spring. Locate a sunny area with partial shaded that supports a trellis system or patio cover. Prepare well drained, rich soil with a pH of 5 to 6.5. Water throughout the season. Kiwifruit grows best with a large amount of water, especially in dry, hot summers. Apply nitrogen rich fertilizer in the first half of the season.
Yes you would grow kiwi fruit here.. I do have some of them here in Morong, Bataan. Around 16 vines about 2-3mtrs in length. 'm still waiting for flowering period and blooming of fruits.. And still I dont know what gender i do have now.

How do you eat kiwi?Just curious to know the different ways people eat a hairy fruit. Personally I just bite into it like an apple, who else does that? Does anyone peel them? If so, how do you do that without mushing it...
