This hardy perennial vine can be found naturally growing in northern Korea, Russia and Japan. This variety has been commercially cultivated for fruit and leaf production. Can be used as a famine food. Very hardy down to -40F. The sweet fruits are the size of large grapes.
Hardy Kiwi have both female and male plants. One male to every 3 female plants will produce adequate amounts of fruit.
The fruits are high in vitamin C and minerals. The leaves are edible and in Korea are called Darae-sun and consumed as a Namul vegetable.
In Russia, the fruit is sold in farmers markets as a seasonal fruit called "Kishmish".
Tip: Sow seeds in a moist soil-less seed mixture and stratify for 3 months. Grow seedlings until they are large enough for the garden. The garden soil must be free-draining with seasonal rains. Heavy soils do not favour kiwi culture. Experience is required.
