Saru Nashi

Out of Control

I probably should prune..

Some winters ago, while I found this wild kiwi vine in the local mountains. It turned out to be Sarunashi (猿梨・さるなし)and with a few key-stokes I discovered this is also the Chinese name and it’s known as kiwi-berry in English.

A few snip-snips and I had a handful of cuttings, And 18 months later I had a bunch of fruit, and now I have a big mess.

Not sure what needs to be done, but a lot of cutting will happen, and I can’t tell the male and female plants from each other. Oh well…
