Pollinatig compatibility between 2 different cultivars of Kiwi vines

Asked May 25, 2016, 12:37 AM EDT

The question is about cross pollination between two cultivars of fruiting kiwi vine. The female is a 4-year old Hardy who's male died 2 years ago. Can a year-old Hayward male Kiwi pollinate the Hardy female? Regards, Nader Rezvani (503)446-1190

A fuzzy kiwi such as 'Hayward' can only be pollinated with the opposite sex of the same species. Unfortunately, it s a different species than is a hardy kiwi.
