Actinidia arguta ‘Issai’

Tasty Green, 100% organically grown fruit. This means that only plant and animal materials have been used during cultivation. The pot and the label are made of recycled plastic and are therefore a clean solution for the environment.

‘Actinidia Arguta Issai’ is a self-pollinating kiwi grape that produces small, smooth, hairless fruits at a young age. It is also known as mini-kiwi. The fruits can be eaten without peeling and are rich in vitamin C. They hang in large clusters on the plant, often camouflaged by the leaves. The cut fruit resembles a miniature kiwi, with a white core surrounded by a ring of black seeds and the typical pattern of lines. The sweet, green berries are ready for picking in August-September and are about 2 to 3 cm in size. Apart from being fresh, the fruits can also be processed in various ways, such as jam or compote. The cut fruits are also beautiful as a garnish for appetizers or desserts. The fruits are also dried and can even be used to make wine. The kiwi grape is a climbing plant and therefore you can best help it by guiding it along a wall, climbing frame or pergola. The leaves of the climber are oblong, shiny dark green above and lighter green below. The kiwi grape flowers in June-July with creamy white flowers. It is completely winter Hardy and can withstand temperatures up to -25 °C. Plant the kiwi plant in a sunny, somewhat sheltered spot.
