  Will actinidia kolomikta grow true from seed? I didn't have the best 
season with my vines but they did get some abuse (I want to movve them 
next year so I wasn't too encouraging this year). Some fruit dropped 
before I could collect them and I dried the seeds. But I was wondering 
what kind of results I would get if I planted them up next spring. Is 
there some way to identify a female plant early on ?( I already have a 
very healthy male and would just like some more females).

Incidentally, previously I posted that my September Sun produced fruit 
of about one and a quarter inches long. Well I would say this was not an 
ideal year for my kiwis given the very long and cold spring we had and 
they still got to 1 inch long. And this time I have the photo evidence 
to prove it!
