The fruits of Chinese actinidia are best collected in late autumn, but before the first frost. After harvesting, the fruits should be stored in a cool place, preferably different varieties separately. (At the same time, if rapid maturation is required, the fruits are stored in the same room with the apples, and if it is a long-term storage, then on the contrary, in different rooms with apples.)

When the mass ripening of berries begins, they must be collected and sorted according to the degree of maturity. 

Chinese actinidia berries can be consumed fresh or dried, you can also make jam, jam, juice, wine, compote or jelly from them.
