Letters to the editor: Where you can grow kiwi fruit and all its needs

The kiwi fruit. It is a temperate fruit which can do well in the temperate regions of Kenya like Central, Western highlands, Central Rift Valley among others. FILE PHOTO | NATION MEDIA GROUP

What you need to know:

  • Kiwi is a temperate fruit and it can do well in the temperate regions of Kenya.
  • Both tomatoes and passion fruits generate good revenue, hence are viable business ventures.
  • Goats keeping require minimum capital and very little space to start.
  • Generally, arrowroot is not known to suffer from pest infestation apart from diseases.

My query is in regard to kiwi farming. What are the weather requirements for this crop and specifically which areas in Kenya would the fruit do well?
