Kiwiberries are quite resistant to disease, but they are susceptible to phytophthora root rot in excessively moist soils.  Conversely, soils that dry rather quickly can dramatically slow growth for at least a few years. 

kiwis require low to moderate effort to manage.  However, fruiting shoots are quite vulnerable to frost damage throughout most of the country, but damage strictly to young leaves can be insignificant.  Some varieties developed in the south may awaken much later than most, but none of them are from species referred to as kiwiberries. 

Hardy kiwis are borderline invasive.  Arctic kiwis are easier to control.
