• kiwi
  • Other names were attributed in other kiwi growing countries: 'Chinese gooseberries' in U.S.A., 'Groseille de China' in France, 'Mao-yantao' or 'Mao-ertao' and 'Yang-tao' or 'Yang-taw', with bristly hair and soft hair, respectively, in China, 'Actinidia' the plant and 'Kiwi' the fruit, in Italy.

  • 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)
  • Vitis

  • shrubs
  • The plants are usually small trees or shrubs, or sometimes vines (Actinidia). (wikipedia.org)
  • The genus includes shrubs growing to 6 m (20 ft) tall, and vigorous, strong-growing vines, growing up to 30 m (98 ft) in tree canopies. (wikipedia.org)
  • Plants
  • Gooseberry most often refers to cultivated plants from two species of the genus Ribes: Ribes uva-crispa native to Europe, northwestern Africa and southwestern Asia. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sarcodes sanguinea) and carnivorous plants (e.g., genus Sarracenia). (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
  • edible
  • 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)
  • gene
  • Genome-wide cataloging of male-specific subsequences, combined with transcriptome analysis, led to the identification of a type-C cytokinin response regulator as a potential sex determinant gene in this genus. (plantcell.org)
  • Evolutionary analyses in a panel of Actinidia species revealed that SyGI is located in the Y-specific region of the genome and probably arose from a lineage-specific gene duplication. (plantcell.org)
  • fruit
  • 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 also the only extant genus within the family whose natural distribution includes areas outside of Asia (tropical South and Central America). (wikipedia.org)
  • late
  • Actinidia macrofossils have been recovered from the late Zanclean stage of Pliocene sites in Pocapaglia, Italy. (wikipedia.org)
  • members
  • Monophyly of the group is supported by genetic evidence and also evidence based on the cell biology of members of the genus. (wikipedia.org)
