Kiwi 'Boskoop' is a self-fertile kiwifruit, meaning that only one plant is needed to produce fruit. The kiwifruit is a deciduous climbing plant, which produces large round leaves covered in tiny light brown hairs. The white flowers are produced in late spring, and with a good summer, the fruit will be ready for picking at the beginning of the autumn. It is a vigorous climber and can grow up to 2 metres in a season so prune to keep a tidy shape.
