Kiwi - Actinidia arguta Issai - self fertile

Kiwi arguta Issai

A compact, self-fertile form of the kiwi fruit, Actinidia arguta Issai is suitable for smaller gardens. A kiwi but not as we know it, similar in taste but much smaller and sweeter and the fruits may be eaten skin and all like a grape. Baby Kiwi Issai is a twining, shrubby, deciduous climber with simple green leaves that do not colour in autumn. Small, distinctive flowers in June are followed by huge crops of small, thin-skinned pale green kiwi fruit which ripens late.
Self-fertile, but will not pollinate other female kiwis. A good choice for forest gardens.
