release or bloom delay techniques ( Naor et al., 2003 ). Kiwifruit ( Actinidia ) is a functionally dioecious liana with variable ploidy levels (e.g., diploid, tetraploid, and hexaploid) ( Huang et al., 2000 ; Li et al., 2010 ). Most current kiwifruit

lantana in Australia also differed dramatically in pollen viability and ploidy level/chromosome number. The weedy form had ≈65% pollen stainability and was a tetraploid with 2 n = 4 x = 48 chromosomes, whereas the garden form had extremely low pollen
