Introducing Cocktail Kiwifruit - aka Kiwiberry

We have this wee treasure growing in the garden just outside the kitchen window, facing north. We have a male and a female plant, with four fruiting leaders on the female vine. The species is apparently a pest plant in Northern America and Canada, so i figure it should do okay at our place!

The fruit is small (about the size of your thumbnail), smooth skinned, and intensely flavoured - I read a description once that said ”as if these kiwifruit were designed by Haribo (German gummibear makers)”.

Kiwiberry is just one of the many weird and wonderful fruits we’re growing at our place. They’ll be included in boxes sometimes if you’re keen to try something new.


  • I’m trying to buy some kiwiberry plants , can you please help with getting my hands on these.

  • Do you perhaps sell, or know where I could buy Cocktail kiwiberry plants in NZ? Can these grow from cuttings? I would be really keen to get some for my garden.

  • Also after a retailer who sells kiwi berrys. Seems pretty hard to come buy .

  • Hi Greg,

    we bought our kiwi berry vines before the PSA virus, and I think after that they have been unavailable. We got ours (and a lot of your other fruit trees) from Edible Gardens in the Manawatu. They supply trees that are already shaped for excellent production and growth, heritage varieties, excellent service.
