Actinidia arguta, commonly known as hardy kiwi or kiwi berry, is a deciduous vine native to Japan, Korea, Northern China, and Russian Siberia. It belongs to the Actinidiaceae family, which also includes the better-known Actinidia deliciosa, the fuzzy kiwifruit. Unlike its larger, fuzzy cousin, Actinidia arguta produces small, smooth-skinned fruits resembling grapes in size and shape. These kiwi berries are typically green when ripe, with a flavor similar to that of the fuzzy kiwifruit but often sweeter. They are known for their high vitamin C content and are often eaten fresh or used in desserts, salads, or jams. Hardy kiwi vines are also cultivated for their ornamental value, with their attractive foliage and sometimes fragrant flowers. Hardy in zones 3-7.


Growing Instructions for the Hardy Kiwi


The seeds have a period of dormancy. They can be planted outdoors in the fall or winter for spring germination or they can be cold stratified to simulate winter conditions and to break their dormancy at any time of the year. 1. Soak the seeds in water for 24 hours. 2. Put the seeds in a ziplock bag. 3. Put the bag in the refrigerator and leave it there for 3 months. 4. The seeds like moist, well-drained soil. Prepare a mixture of half potting soil and half sand, perlite or vermiculite. Put the soil in a pot. 5. Sow the seeds ¼ of an inch deep. 6. Water the soil so that it is moist but not wet. The seeds take 4-5 weeks to sprout. 7. When the seedlings are a few inches tall, they can be transplanted.
