Disappointed after 7 years!

Comments about Arctic Beauty Kiwi, 2 Plants:
I have patiently waited for the beautiful foliage the Arctic Beauty Kiwi is supposed to display. After 7 years, I only have a handful of white frosted leaves on my 3 plants. The growth is slow to moderate. Without the pink color, this plant is not very attractive.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Some good some not so good
from New Smyrna Beach Florida
Both plants arrived by UPS/Fedex. I was surprised at how fragil each was. I have planted them along a wire fence, which will provide suppport. Following directions, I placed them in an area that receives a full days sun.The male plant is doing well. I don't think the female plant will make it even though it received the identical planting soil, fertilizer and water.
So far, so good!

I know this plant has received some negative reviews, but so far my kiwi vines are doing well. We have had some very strong winds since planting the vines, but have observed no ill effects on them. The male arrived with profuse blossoms, all of which fell off during a brief period of transplant shock, and the pink parts of the leaves turned brown. Both plants now look lush and are growing. I agree with another reviewer that spring is not the best time to be mailing and transplanting these vines, since one tends to lose the blossoms. Overall, very pleased so far.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Detailed planting instructionsIs not looking real healthy at presentToo soon to tell if I am going to like this product
from Barnard, VT
The kiwi may turn out okay but I was surprised to receive the plants and directions and find that they really needed an arbor to grow into and a southern exposure. I bought them because the description said shade was okay.
Just as promised

The catalog did not have adequate instructions as to what these plants needed. I was taken aback at having to build an arbor.
A little surprised
By Jessica the designer
from Portland, Me
I purchased this vine because it said it was great in the shade. When I received it the directions said it needed full sun. The spot I had chosen for it wasn't going to work. But I temporarily potted it and watched as all of the leaves died and fell off. I was almost ready to send it back when it started to bud and come back to life. Now I just need to find another location. I am looking forward to tasting this unusual looking fruit.

About Me Getting Started
Well, I planted these as soon as they arrived by mail, following the instructions. They are in a sunny spot on the south side of the house, and have a nice trellis to climb. However, we had a coldish snap after I planted them, with temps into the upper 30's, and the leaves are no longer bright green but have darkened considerably. In about four weeks I have no new growth and am concerned that, despite being hardy to well below zero, the plants are on the way out. That would be quite a disappointment. So, hoping for the best...

The pair of plants arrived in fairly poor shape, but are gradually showing signs of improvement.
