  • Kiwifruit (Actinidia chinensis var. deliciosa (A. Chev.) A. Chev.) is a dioecious species in which size of fruits is strongly dependent on pollination. There are two major factors limiting the efficiency of pollination in this species. These are the short effective pollination period (EPP) of the female cultivar and a 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. For example, many different cancers, especially cancers of the digestive system (mainly stomach cancer), lung, and liver, have been treated with kiwifruit prescriptions due to its cytotoxic and antioxidant activities.
