Kiwis Actinidia Kolomikta
This mini-kiwi can withstand cold temperatures as low as -40 °C. This cultivar produces fruit 3-5 years after planting. The kiwis must be picked before they are ripe as then tend to fall to the ground. They are a little sweeter than non-hardy kiwis. They are delicious fresh, but can also be used in pastries, jams and juices, or as candied fruit. Excellent source of vitamin C and potassium.
This variety has decorative white, pik and silver foliage in the spring. Plants must be protected from the wind and have a hardiness level of 4. They like well-drained, rich, cool soil and full sun. This is a male plant and will not bear fruit, but is essential for pollinizing the September Sun variety.
