Actinidia arguta ‘Issai’
The hardy kiwi, or kiwi berry, is both heat and cold tolerant. Its fruit is smaller than a regular kiwi, but much sweeter and the skin is soft and edible. It can produce up to 100 lb. of fruit a year. The plant requires a sturdy trellis, and should be kept moist, especially during the hot months.
