|Actinidia chinensis, also known as Actinidia deliciosa or Acininidia chinensis of gardens, has become a very popular vine, primarily grown for the kiwi fruits. However it also boasts attractive foliage and fragrant white 1 1/2-inch flowers. The fruit can reach 2 inches across, is encased in a brown fuzzy skin and has lime green interior flesh. Fruits are a better source of vitamin C than oranges and have a pleasant, tart, almost strawberry-like flavor. Requires moist, well drained soil, and partial shade to full sun.
It is fast growing and makes a good cover on a fence, trellis or arbor. Several cultivars are available and it is becoming increasingly popular as an edible landscape feature as well as a fruit crop.
