Actinidia (Actinidia) from the Actinidiaceae family – more often known as mini kiwi – is a creeper bearing tasty fruits which ripen from September till October. They are little-known, which is a pity, since they are extremely valuable plants, easy to grow, cold hardy and – most importantly – resistant to diseases and pests. They are also rather undemanding in cultivation. Actinidia yields egg-shaped, elongated berries with frequently green and brown skin and green, aromatic pulp. Actinidia most often is dioecious which means that male and female flowers are found on separate plants. There are also some varieties which are hermaphroditic.
