Abstract: Actinidia arguta is a dioecious vine commercially cultivated in many countries. Effective pollination is essential for good quality yield. Possibility of supporting the A. arguta natural pollination with commercially available A. deliciosa pollen was studied. The research was conducted on commercial plantation in central Poland. Regardless of the many troubles and threats associated with this procedure the effectiveness is insufficient. More appropriate solution seems to be optimizing natural pollination using A. arguta pollen.
