A male cultivar: the flowers only produce pollen. I grow it as pollenizer (pollen supplier) for the female cultivar Hardy Kiwi (Actinidia kolomikta 'Red Beauty'), which produces fruit. It's said to have better leaf color (pink to white patches), but mine is in mostly shade and rarely develops any color.
