Family Actinidiaceae
Originating from East Asia

A handsome and fast growing deciduous climber with large, dark green, heart-shaped leaves and stems covered in red, fuzzy hairs. Scented, cream coloured, cup-shaped flowers are produced in summer followed by fruits in autumn.
Actinidia is grown not only for its ornamental value but also for its luscious, juicy, egg-shaped fruits, rich in Vitamin C. ‘Boskoop’ is a self-pollinating variety.
Actinidia deliciosa has proven to be a very hardy plant, growing in a fully exposed area at the nursery but the protection of a warm wall will give a higher yield of fruit. Fruits forming should be thinned. We don’t recommended it as a conservatory climber due its vigour and the unpleasant smell of the leaves on a warm summer’s day, barely noticeable outdoors, but unacceptable inside.
Grow in moist but well-drained neutral to acid soil. It dislikes very chalky soils.
