Actinidia arguta (female)

Actinidia arguta (female)

Sweet small berry-like fruits can be eaten whole

Not currently available.

A hardy, deciduous prolific fruiting climber, this kiwi plant produces tasty, sweet small berry-like fruits in the autumn which can be eaten whole without peeling. Less vigorous than the Actinidia chinensis variety, it is a bit more manageable in the garden, though can still grow up to 9m/28ft. It prefers a sunny wall or trellis (important for support) to grow against, and will require a male arguta plant to be positioned about 60cm/2ft away from it for pollination. (One male plant can pollinate up to around eight female plants). A rich, fertile, well drained, slightly acidic soil offers the best growing conditions.
