Hardy Kiwi is a relative of the more familiar Kiwi we see in the grocery store, however, they grow only in warm climates. Hardy Kiwi grows quite well in Southern Ontario. Grown as much for its attractive foliage as its edible fruit, the Hardy Kiwi is a compact deciduous climbing vine that produces grape sized fruit with excellent flavour and no peeling required. Hardy Kiwi requires both a male and a female to produce fruit.
Nectarines are actually a type of peach without the fuzz. The taste is similar and they are interchangeable with almost all recipes. Nectarines tend to be smaller, firmer and have more honey-like aromas. Technically self-pollinating, but with all fruit trees, you will get the best yield if you have two trees and surprisingly easy to grow.
Peaches have been a favourite stone-fruit crop in Ontario since the 1880s. The juicy flesh of a mature Peach is sweet to sweet-tart in flavour. As with most fruit trees, Peaches love the sun and are easy to grow. In spring, the beautiful blossoms have a pleasant fragrance & the delicious fruit is ready in late summer.
