Actinidia arguta Issai - Hardy Smooth Kiwi Vines

Actinidia arguta Issai is "the other only Kiwi" for the British kiwi enthusiast. The fruit are arguably better than the common shop varieties, only a bit smaller. The self-fertile vine itself is tough and only reaches 4 metres, ideal for growing up the South side of a normal house, whereas Jenny wants to grow a couple of metres taller, and is a tad less hardy.

The cream flowers appear in May and attract bees, but they are partly hidden behind the healthy, glossy green leaves.
Harvest in late summer in the South or early autumn in the North.

Grow on support in fertile, well-drained, neutral or acidic soil in full sun.
