  • Genus
  • Actinidia /ˌæktɪˈnɪdiə/ is a genus of woody and, with a few exceptions, dioecious plants native to temperate eastern Asia, occurring throughout most of China, Taiwan, Korea, and Japan, and extending north to southeast Siberia and south into Indochina. (wikipedia.org)
  • Phylogenetic relationships between A. deliciosa and three of its closest relatives within the same section of the genus Actinidia were investigated using restriction fragment length polymorphism and the data used to generate a phylogenetic tree depicting this relationship. (openthesis.org)
  • People who tasted the fruit thought it had a gooseberry flavour, so began to call it the Chinese gooseberry, but being from the Actinidia genus, it is not related to the Grossulariaceae (gooseberry) family. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is the hardiest species in the genus Actinidia, at least down to about −40 °C (−40 °F) in winter, albeit somewhat susceptible to late spring frosts. (wikipedia.org)
  • It was then moved to the genus Actinidia in 1867 by Friedrich Anton Wilhelm Miquel after the invalidly published suggestion by Jules Émile Planchon to move the species. (wikipedia.org)
  • cultivars
  • Results obtained with one of these sequences suggested that DNA fingerprinting of Actinidia cultivars will be possible, but may require optimization of the hybridization conditions, or the isolation of alternative probes. (openthesis.org)
  • plant
  • Although the fruit is edible, is not commercially cultivated, however it is occasionally sold as a landscape plant under the erroneous name Actinidia melandra. (wikipedia.org)
