Kiwi - Actinidia arguta Ananasnaya - female

Kiwi arguta Ananasnaya - female

This is a female kiwi, and you will also need a male cultivar if you want fruit. Arguta kiwis produce smaller fruit than actinidia kiwis, the size of a large grape, but they are smooth-skinned, very sweet, and can be eaten whole. Actinidia arguta Ananasnaya is a very large (up to 20’/6m), vigorous, long-lived, scrambling climber with attractive red stems which will need sturdy support and plenty of space. The leaves are ovoid and olive-green, and in late spring small, ivory-white, nectar-rich flowers are produced, good for pollinators. Hardy kiwi Ananasnaya is an easy kiwi for first-time growers, disease-resistant, salt-tolerant, exceptionally cold-hardy, and ideal for permaculture growers. Spur-prune for more and earlier fruit and a well-clothed bushy appearance; espalier-training makes pruning easier.
