A Japanese self-pollinating form with tasty lemon-flavoured durable fruit (Mini Kiwi) ripening in late September-October. Oval berries, about 2 cm long and 1,5 cm across can be eaten unpeeled. It starts setting fruit in the 2nd-3rd year after planting. It sustains frost down to Ė22oC. The plant requires a warm, sunny, sheltered site and moist fertile well-drained soil. Twining stems. Itís suitable for growing up various supports, arbours, pergolas and wire meshes. It can also be trained along the wires stretched between the pylons.
