Cut the kiwi into several parts and gently knead the pulp, removing the main part. The remaining pulp with seeds to shift into a glass and pour water. Rinse several times to leave some seeds. The less the pulp remains, the better, it will protect the seeds from putrefactive processes. Lay out carefully washed seeds on a dry napkin or gauze and allow to dry for several hours.

To germinate seeds, you must perform the following procedure: take cotton wool and put it in a plate, put kiwi seeds on cotton wool, then pour boiling water over it.Water should be moderately so that cotton wool is wet, otherwise a lack of moisture will destroy the seeds. We cover the plate with seeds with a film and set it in the warmest and lightest place. At night, open the film.

The soil for kiwi can be taken ready - for the vines. Sprouted seeds should be planted to a depth of about 1 cm and lightly sprinkled with earth, then sprinkled with separated water at room temperature.

Seeds should germinate on the 7th - 10th day with proper care, which is only in sufficient watering and lighting.
