Actinidia setosa - BSWJ3563

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
A deciduous twining woody stemmed climber, originating from seed we collected in the Taipingshan high altitude area of northern Taiwan in 1996. Where it had only formed a relatively small plant climbing over a couple of small trees and shrubs at the edge of the forest, but capable of 8m in ideal conditions. The reddish-brown stems were clothed in rounded-cordate prominently veined hairy leaves around 15cm across. With a few of the rounded fruit densely covered in gingery hairs still held in axils of the older leaves. The Taiwanese are concentrating a lot of effort in selecting fruiting forms because they reckon it will supersede A. deliciosa. Easily grown in any type of drained fertile soil in sun to light shade.
