    Three years ago I lost my head and spent about $50 to get four Kiwi plants from a fellow sixty miles or so from here. One is self-fruitful and will pollinate females of the second variety. I got a male, two females and this bi-thing. Having paid so much for them I took great pains with them, and today they are great beasts with tentacles ten feed long from this spring's growth. They are also carrying their first fruits.

    Now, does anyone here have any experience propagating Kiwis? I would like to get some more of these things started. They grow so well here that I sense a market garden in the making.

    Done all that. I want to talk to someone who has done it and knows what it involves.

    I can fly from the manual if called upon to do it, but I prefer experience.

    How did you get them to put on fruit? Mine are about 5 years old, and still no fruit. (Yes, I got male and female). They keep growing, but no fruit.
