In both cranberry and kiwifruit, related species are under consideration as potential new crops. In kiwifruit, the related yellow-fleshed Actinidia chinensis has been introduced, and the small-fruited, hardy A. arguta (also known as tara fig) is under consideration as a new domesticate and now widely planted in northern home gardens.
