Annanasnaya Female Hardy Kiwi

(Actinidia arguta)

Full Sun. requires male for polination

Kiwis for the North!  Not as large as the fuzzy kiwifruit, but with smooth, edible skin, much sweeter, and unbelievable flavor!  Taste almost perfumed with floral qualities.  Vines are breathtakingly beautiful with bright green leaves and red stems.  Trellis these in the garden or on your house for an edible and beautiful vine.  Can take shade but will fruit best in half-day to full sun (prefers afternoon shade if possible).  Vines grow fast and become very tenacious once established (‘Issai’ is somewhat smaller).   Needs sturdy trellis.   Male and female plants needed for pollination (except for ‘Issai’ which is self-fertile) but only one male needed for 8 females (keep within 50′ of male).  Space 15′ apart on trellis.

Late season.  Developed in Russia, known to be one of the most productive varieties.  Name means “pineapple-like” in Russian.   Steady producer and easy to grow.  Fruits are round-oblong, and very sweet.  Needs male for pollination.  Zones 5-8. . .
