Arctic Beauty Kiwi™ Bundle
Our Arctic Beauty Kiwi Bundle includes one Male Arctic Beauty Kiwi and three different female Arctic Beauty Kiwi plants.
A reliable male kolomikta for any of our female varieties, the UDSA male is a selection from New Hampshire that shows slightly less variegation than the Pasha Male but produces an abundance of flowers to pollinate all of your female arctic beauty kiwi varieties.
The largest fruiting cultivar of any arctic beauty kiwi we’ve seen, Krupnoplodnaya might be a mouthful of a name, but it will also give you a mouth full of kiwis!
An old accession from the USDA collection, Broadmore is a very reliable producer of large kiwis and has proven a great choice for cold climate growers in the Northeast as well as other parts of the country.
Red Beauty Arctic Beauty Hardy Kiwi foliage produces a reddish cast and is attractive in the summer but becomes showier when autumn approaches.
Native to the forest of eastern Russia where it is called Kishmish, Arctic Beauty is the hardiest of all the Kiwi species. A beautiful vine, Arctic Beauty’s unique, light and airy foliage is splashed in the spring with green, white, and pink variegation. Male plants are especially colorful and are often planted alone for their ornamental value.

Enjoy fuzzless Arctic Beauty fruit skin and all like grapes.
