I found a site called Willis Orchard co 1-866-586-6283

they suggest hardy kiwi or artic kiwi.  needs 150 frost free days to mature.  I would a lot of checking before I invest in them.

Thank you for your time and expertise! I live in Louisiana (zone 8) and I have since found others that are growing kiwi here. There must be male and female plants to cross pol.  Seems they must be planted after danger of frost in the spring. Everything does super around the chiucken yard, so that's where they will go. I will check out  Willis Orchard.
I would wait until the danger of frost has passed for your area and then order your hardy kiwi tree.  Winter is very hard on newly planted plants.

My husband loves KIWI and it is too cold up here in NE PA for them to grow.  We would need a big green house to have that growing here.  Too many hunters.  Good luck with your pair of hardy Kiwi's................
