Kiwi fruit will grow outside … there is a plant on the front wall of the Botanic Gardens in Dublin for many years, and it will fruit outdoors in a sunny position in a good summer if there is a male and female plant.

It is a vine and needs some structure to climb on, including trees. It is very vigorous and can cover a large fence.
