Vincent Kiwi, Actinidia chinensis
The ‘Vincent’ kiwi is a vigorous growing female, fuzzy kiwi vine. Its large egg size fruit are similar to what you would purchase in a store. Its flavor is the classical sweet kiwi flavor with a hint of strawberry too. The fruit ripens in late fall, around October in most places. The ‘Vincent’ does very well in warmer climates.
