Ten large fruit strains of Actinidia chinensis var. chinensis were found to be tetraploid. Mean fruit weights are from 71 g to 100 g. Fruit shapes are spheroidal .ovoid, ellipsoid,or turbinate. Habitat altitutes are from 560 m to 1 035 m. The relationship between fruit size and polyploidy as well as the genetic breeding value of the tetraploidstrains were discussed.
