Actinidia arguta 'Issai'

Have a small yard? Issai is for you! Growing to only 8' long, Issai is less vigorous and somewhat self-fruitful, though it's much more productive with a male arguta pollinizer. It can be maintained in a pot, which can help keep its feet dry. Although it can be somewhat challenging to establish, it's a valuable addition to a small-scale garden!

These vigorous, 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.
