Hardy Kiwi

I have planted one male and one female kiwi plant in both 1999 and 2000. Unfortunatley. Each year one of the plants did not survive. So, I have tow plants that are 5-6 yeras old, doing very well but are not producing fruit. My fear that I have two males or two females seems to be turning to reality.

Is there a way to determin the sex?

I mail ordered the plans and can not find them locally.

What should I do? Just keep planting pairs until I get two to survive?

The male plant produces pollen for just a couple of days while the female is receptive for a week or more, so timing is important. Probably your best bet is to buy plants of known sex and keep them marked.

The sex of the plant is determined by examination of the flower parts. Males have stamens only and females have pistils only inside the flower.
