Positive coriaceous On Jan 9, 2015, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

This is a smaller climber than the other hardy kiwi species, and this may make it better suited to the domestic landscape. It doesn't get more than about 15' tall, unlike the monster species A. arguta and A. kolomikta.

This is an ornamental only, as the fruit is astringent. In other respects, it's mostly similar---tough and adaptable, dioecious with attractive white blotches on the leaves of mature males.
