This seedling of cultivar 'Qui' Qui was selected near the border of North Korea from the wild near Chang Bai Mountain Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Agriculture. We offer Chang Bai because it is very productive and flavorful green fruit with a unique almost heart shape. Its from a cold mountainous region and should be as winter hardy as other hardy kiwis. Needs male arguta for pollination.
These fast growing beautiful vines produce clusters of oblong kiwis the size of large grapes Lacking the rough kiwi skin, these 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. USDA Zones 5-9. The vines are very vigorous and productive and need a strong support. Select a fuzzy or arguta male for pollination.
