This is the species that brings you kiwi fruit! Actinidia deliciosa 'Jenny' is the only self-fertile selection of this large, rampant, decidous vine needing a structure or large tree to climb on and a lot of space in which to sprawl. It has brown fuzzy stems, large, rich green, heart-shaped, textured foliage, pure white flowers centred with masses of golden stamens and the fuzzy brown berries that we call kiwifruit. Full sun and rich soil are the best for fruit production though tolerant of part shade. Produces more fruit when a male is present.

Mountain forests though other sources suggest that this species is not known from any truly wild situation.
