Fruits - multichamber berries, oblong, rounded oblong or ploskookrugly, 2-2,5 cm in length, 1,5 cm wide, green, sometimes with yellowish shade. Under direct beams the lit side reddens and gets bronze outflow.
On taste of berry sweet or sourish and sweet, edible - with aroma of pineapple. Fruit thin skin smooth, brilliant and very thin.
In the conditions of the Siberian region ripen in August - September, not at the same time (within 15-20 days). Begins to fructify for 3-4 year, can fructify till 50 years. Actinidia - in the majority plant gonochoristic therefore are necessary female (Memory of the Teacher, Nakhodka, Klara Tsetkin, September, Forty) and man's (Adam, the Commander, the Snowball, GF-17/9) plants if you want to receive harvest. For pollination one man's plant on 5 female suffices. But happen as well self-fertile grades, for example: Doctor Szymanowski.
The harvest of liana reaches 5-7kg (if to consider that the space occupied by one liana is very small, then the harvest can be considered high). The actinidia grows in Siberia better on slightly shaded place where the sun falls to 12, as a last resort, till 14 o'clock (for example, at East side of the house). In full shadow the actinidia will not yield fruits, and on the sun it strongly burns out that affects both fruits, and leaves.
The kolomicta actinidia is considered the most frost-resistant look, it maintains frosts to -40 °C - and it without shelter!
It is the twisting liana height to 3-4m, draws are in roundabout all the time. Characteristic of Kolomikta its variegation which is especially expressed on man's plants. Landing requires the warm, protected from drafts place. Needs strong support which establish right after landing.
