Guide to Grow & Care Mini-Kiwi Berry From Seeds
How Can I Germinate Mini-Kiwi Berry Seeds?
Soak the Kiwi Berry seeds in lukewarm water for 24 hours. This will support softening the seed coat and improve germination rates. Fill a seed tray or small pots with a good-quality potting mix. Make sure the mixture is moist but not soggy. Sow the seeds about 0.60cm deep in the soil. Cover them lightly with soil and press down gently. Cover the tray or pots with a pliable wrap or a clear lid to create a humid environment. Place the tray or pots in a warm, well-lit area, such as a windowsill or greenhouse. Keep the soil moist by misting it with a spray bottle or watering it from the bottom. Check the seeds regularly for signs of germination. Mini-kiwi berry seeds can take several weeks to germinate, so be patient.
How Can I Care for The Mini-Kiwi Berry Plant?
Mini-kiwi berry plants need regular watering, especially during hot, dry weather. Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Fertilize your mini-kiwi berry plants with a balanced fertilizer, such as 10-10-10, in the spring and summer. The plants need regular pruning to control their growth and promote fruit production. Prune in the late winter or early spring before new growth begins. Remove any dead or damaged wood, and thin out crowded branches. Mini-kiwi berry plants are vines and need support to grow. Install a trellis or other support system to help the plant climb. Mini-kiwi berry plants need cross-pollination to produce fruit. You will need both male and female plants for successful pollination. You can try hand-pollinating the flowers with a small brush if you only have one plant.
