On a single plantation in the country — in Sochi — have grown this year, more than 40 tons of berries.
Lab Assistant Research Station Natalia Mokhovskoye for kiwi cares for 25 years. It was then brought to Adler the first seedlings of woody vines.
"In the 90th year we started collecting. Annually collect. Every year the harvest more and more ", — said assistant state scientific institution "Adler Experimental Station" Natalia Mokhovskoye.
Now six hectares of plantations grow seven varieties of kiwi. For example, Bruno — small and are similar to grapes. But Hayward, on the contrary, — large, almost like apples. Drip irrigation, proper pruning, favorable weather — resulting in a rich harvest — not less than 50 tonnes.
Exotic collected fall into refrigerated containers. At a certain temperature are Chinese gooseberries — the so-called kiwi yet — may remain until the next harvest. The berries are grown without the use of chemicals. Therefore, and stored without preservatives. Environmentally friendly product on the shelves do not lie: it is sold in local markets and shops. But Sochi resorts, according to employees of the station, prefer not to local fruits and imported.

Therefore, management plans Experimental Station — laying of new plantations. Next year there will be new seedlings from Japan and Italy. It is in these countries, selection of berries is at the highest level.
