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.
