Actinidia arguta ‘Chung Bai’ or Chung Bai Kiwi for short is a Korean Grape Kiwi Variety. This variety, like most arguta’s is extrememly hardy. It is able to survive temperatures far below freezing. But, what makes this bower actinidia plant unique amongst the rest, is its peculiar shaped fruits: grape sized, and tiny, shaped like little Apples, or you might even say hearts.
Just like the other Grape Kiwis you can just eat this Kiwi right off the vine, no peeling necessary.
In order to pollinate 6 to 8 female Kiwi plants one male Kiwi plant is required. We recommend to plant one of the following male varieties alongside your female Kiwi plants: Actinidia arguta ‘Weiki M’, Actinidia arguta ‘Meader, Actinidia arguta ‘Andrew’, or even Actinidia arguta ‘Issai'(self-fertile).
