Planted Hardy Kiwi

Hardy Kiwi is something I’ve wanted to grow for some time now, but never got around to it.  I like the taste of the New Zealand Kiwi’s but never really cared for the fuzzy skin.  I have read that while the Hardy Kiwi that will grow in my zone it does produce smaller fruit that has a smooth skin.  However it will produce something like 100 lbs of fruit per vine.  I planted one male and two female vines as you need one male for every 6 female vines.  Also it will be several years before they produce fruit.  My plan it to build a nice arbor for them to climb up and I can sit under on a hot day.
