By now I have fruited three different golden (yellow) kiwi accessions. My oldest female is the result of the grafts I made in 2016. The scions came from a member of Santa Clara Valley (SCV) chapter of CRFG. Someone brought a male and a female cuttings of golden kiwi for one of the regular meetings at Prusch Park. These ones I keep under "SCV golden female" and "SCV golden male" names. They both are grafted onto the same Vincent female of fuzzy kiwi.
Later, in the same year, I came across the seeds harvested from a yellow kiwi with red center. I planted 14 seedlings in 2017. A number of males and one female bloomed in 2019, but no fruits were made that year. In 2020, two females bloomed and both produced fruit. None had red center, but both are exceptionally sweet. I was not planning on releasing the material from them this season, as I wanted to evaluate them better. I am releasing them early, as both fruits seems to be better than the "SCV golden female". I do not have data on productivity. Keep in mind that these are EXPERIMENTAL and all I have is the observation of few fruits in one season! These females probably need their own male. I do not know if SCV male will pollinate them, but their blooming times overlap. They all bloomed in early April in Vacaville, California.
