Anna Female Hardy Kiwi (Actinidia arguta 'Anna') is not only a beautiful ornamental vine, it is also a commercially grown fruit vine that produces pounds of tasty grape-sized kiwi. These golden green fruit taste just like hairy kiwi, yet no peeling is needed. You can eat the whole fruit - skin and all. In order to pollinate 6 to 8 female kiwi plants one male kiwi plant is required. We recommend planting one of the following male varieties, alongside your female Kiwi plants: Actinidia arguta ‘Weiki M’, Actinidia arguta ‘Meader’ or Actinidia arguta ‘Andrew’.
