Kiwi tree

 

seen in an open garden in Münstershire

 

According to the blossoms this is a male kiwi tree.

Kiwi is a rapidly growing vining plant that produces delicious, bright green fruit with a non-edible fuzzy brown exterior. In order for the plant to set fruit, both male and female kiwi vines are necessary; in fact, at least one male plant for every eight female kiwi plants is required. With a flavor somewhere between pineapple and berries, it is a desirable and attractive fruit to grow, but one question plagues the grower. How do I tell the difference between male and female kiwis? Determining the sex of kiwi is the key to understanding why the plant is or is not fruiting.

Fera-t-il des fruits ou pas ?
Philine: Only the female trees bear fruits. Merci bien, Martine!

I have never seen one before - thank you, Philine
Philine: Like me - there must be male and female trees in a garden to cause fruits. Many thanks, Lisl!

I like the backlighting on the leaves. I like kiwi fruit; I've never seen a kiwi tree before.
Philine: I am eating a kiwi fruit every day. I often like backlighting, too. Many thanks, Alan!

Interesting - I have never seen one of these Philine
Philine: They are a rarity in our northern countries. Many thanks, Chris! I suppose that you have been in the Mendip Hills with Ginnie and Astrid.
Well I would never believe it Philine, good old Münstershire.
Philine: Kiwi trees remain a rarity in Munstershire, but in Arboreta you can find some exotic trees. Many thanks, Chad!

Looks a bit like a New Zealand bloke, Philine, but they usually wear black clothing and stick their tongues out!
Philine: Haha - thank you very much for your funny, witty comments, Ray!
It carries a very beautiful blossom.
Philine: Yes, it carries, many thanks, Mary!
very interesting, Philine. i would not have known from the blooms. but they are very pleasing to look at.
Philine: Thank you kindly, Ayush!
Very pretty blossom isn't it.
Philine: but no fruits at this tree. Many thanks, Brian!
I have never seen one Philine. How splendid!
Philine: Like me before. Many thanks, Bill! We have still the most beautiful september weather - we are longing for some rain now.
