I have had a male and female kiwi fruit for about 5 years but they have never flowered. They are about half metre apart. What am I doing wrong?

Answer: Dear Lorraine,

If your vines hasn’t produced fruit by now, it is likely that your vines are of the same sex. You will need to investigate further. The leaf & flower shapes are different and usually the males vine is much more vigorous in growth habit. You could look on the Department of Primary Industry’s website for more information.
