Actinidia chinensis is a vigorous, deciduous climber with reddish, shaggy, hairy young shoots, and broadly ovate, heart-shaped, green leaves. Clusters of scented, creamy-white flowers bloom in spring and are followed by kiwi fruits on female plants in autumn. Fruits are oblong, hairy, greenish-brown, with very tasty green flash and numerous tiny, black seeds. Actinidia chinensis grows best in fertile, rich, loamy, well-drained soils. It thrives in full sun and best fruit is achieved in full sun. It can withstand some frost, but needs to be sheltered form harsh winds. New growth can be damaged by late frosts. The plant is dioecious, male and female, and not self-fertile. Generally, disease-free and pest-free. Susceptible to leaf scorch. May need some pruning in winter. Actinidia chinensis is mostly cultivated for its fruit which is of delicious flavour. Since it is a climber, the plant is best grown against a wall or on sturdy trellises, arbours, and fences.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
