- Actinidia chinensis is a dioecious species in which size of fruits is strongly dependent on pollination. Two major factors limite the efficiency of pollination in this species, the short effective pollination period (EPP) of the female cultivar and the lack of flowering coincidence between the female cultivar and the male pollen donor. It is currently accepted that the consumption of kiwifruit has a preventive effect against certain cancers and cardiovascular disease. Many different cancers, especially cancers of the digestive system, lung, and liver, have been treated with kiwifruit prescriptions due to its cytotoxic and antioxidant activities .
