I saw an actinidia kolomikta in a catalogue and wanted one...they don't develop the colouration immediately, apparently it takes up to two years for the pink to come out..but it is not as cold hardy as I need.. it sure it beautiful. wonderful pic...

I have many kolomikta sorts, but not this colour of mail plant.I am breeding it,and I manage to get sort Vitakola, femail plant, which was apreciated as best sort in world.
It have tasty fruit, length of berry is 42mm, and it have three berries on one stem, very fruitfull.
Alltogether specie kolomikta brings most healthy fruit in world for its content of vitamin C. My sort have 1520mg%.
I hope I will get contact with british sort testing station and with best company who will sell it.

I am not able to send plants to each interesant.
Here on this forum I am by chance, my e-mail is: nokal1@seznam.cz
some femail sorts have also colored leaves.Some mail plants have even more beuty of leaves.

Thats interesting Vrana especially about the Vitimin C content , It's a shame but I don't think we would ever have fruit on our plants in this country .......
