Kiwi

Arctic Kiwi

Actinidia kolomikta Zone 3 10m+
The males and some females produce leaves with white and pink variegation during flowering that persists. Often called the Tri-Color Kiwi, it can form a large vine or can be pruned in a similar manner to grapes. The fruit is oval and the size of a large grape. Flavor is very similar to the fuzzy kiwis, perhaps sweeter. Begins to produce after 2 years. A male is required. One male can pollinate at least 9 females.

Hardy Kiwi

Actinidia arguta Zone 3 10m+
An extremely vigorous vine with shiny large heart shaped leaves. Fruit is round and squat and slightly larger than the Arctic Kiwi. Begins to produce in 6 yrs.

Note: Kiwi plants are only available potted. We can bare root them for shipping but we will have to charge the potted price.

Currants

Red Lake Currant
Ribes sativum 'Red Lake' Zone 2 1m
The finest variety of red currant, producing large bright red fruit in clusters. Superb for jellies, syrups, etc. Plants are self fruitful.

Black Currant
Ribes nigrum. Zone 2 1.25m
Dark black fruits are produced in clusters. Favorite for jams and baking. Black currants need two different varieties for pollination. Both our selections, (Consort & Titania, (most productive)), are completely resistant to pine blister rust, a disease that uses currants and gooseberries as alternate hosts when not attacking white pine.

Elderberries

Sambucus canadensis

Zone 3 3-4m
A vigorous shrub with large compound leaves. The ivory flowers are arranged in flat umbels that can be dipped in batter and fried. The clusters of purple-black fruit are used in jams, syrups, wine, baking and increasingly in nutraceuticals, as they has high levels of vitamins and anti-oxidants. Elderberries need pollination from a different variety to set fruit.
