Actinidia arguta 'Annanasnaja'

Easy to grow and loaded with fruit! Developed in Russia by renowned plant breeder I.V. Michurin. It is a beautiful, vigorous vine that produces thousands of delicious kiwi-flavored sweet fruit at Raintree every autumn. The name means "pineapple-like" in Russian, named for its fabulously strong and fruity flavor. It is the easiest to grow and most productive of all the hardy kiwis. 

These fast-growing, beautiful vines produce clusters of oblong kiwi fruits the size of large grapes. Lacking the rough "fuzzy" kiwi skin, these smooth fruits can be eaten whole, like bunches of kiwi-flavored seedless grapes. Originally brought to this country as an ornamental, the green fruit is similar to the fuzzy kiwi in flavor, though sweeter and easier to eat. The smooth-textured vines are very vigorous and need a strong support. Training a fruiting female vine up the legs or railings of a deck, or along an unattractive chain link fence, can create a great tropical effect and be uniquely easy to harvest! Have a hardy arguta male for pollination.

Ask a Question
  • what is the male pollinator for ANNANASNAJA HARDY KIWI?

    The "male hardy kiwi" and "male fuzzy kiwi" plants we sell will both work.

  • Hi, I see that Cordifolia (hardy kiwi) takes 3 - 5 years to bare fruit. Does Ananasnaya also take that long? (Looking for something sooner if possible!) Thanks , Lauren

    All of the arguta kiwis, which both of these are, can take up to 7 years to mature and flower (but usually 3-5 years). The same is true for the male plants, that you also must have. If either plant is too young to flower there will be no pollination and no fruit.

  • Will deer browse the hardy kiwis?

    Absolutely, deer will browse anything. Fortuantely they grow pretty aggressively once established and you won't really notice on a mature trellised vine.
