Tropical Actinidia Kolomikta, Kiwi Vines

Actinidia Kolomikta

The Actinidia kolomikta sometimes called "Arctic Beauty Kiwi," is a beautiful woody perennial vine that is a very hardy kiwi vine with heart shaped leaves that change colors from its incredible bright green leaves in the summer to a soft pink, and white color looking as if someone had dipped them in paint with perfect precision giving them a colorful burst of color.

Much smaller than the popular kiwi fruit and there is also no fuzz on them and another great thing about them is that this fruit contains several times the amount of vitamin C, ounce for ounce as much as most citrus fruits.

Growing kiwi can be a bit challenging because just like Kiwi fruit trees you need to mate or pollinate a male and female plant in order to produce fruit.

They can grow in zones 4 to 10 and they do well in well-drained, moderately moist soil in either direct sun or partial sun and shade throughout the day and its also frost hardy.

The vines should begin to bear fruit approximately one to two years after planting, and once you get your plant established they can live and produce fruit up to fifty years or more.

Just like humans only the female plants produce fruit but wont produce without a male plant.

Growing Kiwi

Tropical Actinidia Kolomikta vines require support in order to grow properly.

So make sure that you start with a durable trellis made up of any material that suits your garden décor to insure the sturdiness of your vine.

Tropical Kiwi vines climb by twining, rather than by anchoring themselves so your may need to help it along to attach to your trellis.

So as your Plant grows make sure to help attach the vines to the trellis to help ensure a healthy plant.
