What are Lubera grape kiwis?

Lubera grape kiwis are the best fruiting Actinidia arguta varieties that we have put together as an assortment. We call them grape kiwis because they bear fruit in clusters; they are more like berry plants than fruit trees, and because they are fruit-bearing vines just like table grapes. Grape kiwis are not just small kiwis (the term mini kiwi is also misleading and should really no longer be used); they are not only the small stepsisters of the classic kiwi, but a type of berry fruit in its own right.

Why plant Lubera grape kiwis?
-the fruits are edible with the skin
-they are more aromatic than the classic kiwi
-the yield is very high and regular and is usually earlier than the classic kiwi
-they are edible directly off the bush
-they are absolutely frost-resistant/hardy to about -30°C
