Product information "Summer Kiwi Vitakola®"

Harvest kiwis in the summer! The dream becomes reality with Actinidia kolomicta, the summer kiwi.
For a long time, they were only known as ornamental varieties with the attractive pink-white-green variegated leaves, and the fruits were mostly forgotten. Why? Because they are relatively small and suddenly fall off the shrub during maturity in August.
However, with the new varieties from the Czech Republic, Vitakola®, the fruits are now visible: they are 4-4.5 cm long and hang like many cucumbers on the fertile shrubs. They have an elongated, oval shape; they are green-yellow to yellow-green on the outside, while the inside glitters a green, juicy and savoury flesh. It is perhaps worth mentioning that many varieties of Arguta have been crossed with Actinidia improve fruit quality. Actinidia kolomicta are self-infertile and need the pollinator Adam. The Vitakola® summer kiwi is hardy to -30°C and has yet another advantage: it usually starts to bear fruit very early, already in the 2nd or 3rd year.
Maturity: Matures in August. Blooms in May with small, white flowers that smell like lemons
Fruits: 44.5 cm long, first variety of summer kiwi that reaches or surpasses the size of grapes or mini kiwi; elongated, oval; the many fruits hang like small, mini cucumbers on the bush; greenish yellow on the outside, green on the inside, edible skin
Flavour: Sweet, aromatic, slightly reminiscent of raspberries
Growth/health: Compact growth, 2 - 4 m. Needs pollinator Adam, hardy down to -30°C, robust, bears fruit starting in the 2nd and 3rd year
Botanical name: Actinidia kolomikta
What are Lubera summer kiwis?
Lubera summer kiwis are the most beautiful and best Actinidia kolomikta varieties that we have found, especially in Eastern Europe. They combine the advantages of the grape kiwi with the early harvest time and the ornamental value, thanks to the striped and coloured leaves. Hence the name “splendor kiwis”.
Why plant Lubera summer kiwis?
-Summer kiwis are a delight due to their fruits AND their decorative leaves
-The fruits are already ripe in August, when we all like to be the garden!
-The yield is very high and regular and is usually earlier than the classic kiwi
-They have the most compact habit of all kiwis
-Summer kiwis are absolutely frost resistant in the winter like the grape kiwis
-Summer kiwis are ideal for balconies, terraces and small gardens

Summer Kiwi Vitakola® (Greg Smith)

Do these fruits suddenly fall from the vine when ripe like other kolomictas, or can they be picked to ripen off the vine?

Summer Kiwi Vitakola® (Lubera)

Hi Greg Smith, Vitakola is also falling from the plant when the fruit is totally ripe. Best regards from Switzerland
