Arctic Kiwi

Arctic Kiwi (Actinidia kolomikta) are far less vigorous and management intensive than kiwi berries (Actinidia arguta) This is an excellent option for backyard and garden plantings, producing lovely crops of sweet and tender smooth-skinned fruits with very little acidity.  Native to northern China, eastern Siberia, and the Korean peninsula, arctic kiwis are exceptionally cold-hardy, able to survive temperatures as low as -40°C (-40°F) when dormant.  The species has long been prized for its ornamental value; but note that the delicate leaves of arctic kiwi can be sensitive to sun-scalding, so it is best to grow the plants under full to partial shade conditions.
