I'd like to ask you:
What is the plant family for the Kiwifruit?

Hope you can help me out.

Kiwi is Actinidia. Hardy kiwi (smooth skinned, grape-sized fruit) is Actinidia arguta. Fuzzy kiwi is Actinidia deliciosa. This is the type of kiwi you most often find in the supermarket. Then there is Actinidia kolomikta, also known as Arctic Beauty. Fruits are small and the foliage on this plant is variegated (pink, white and green). Hope this helps!
