The Korean kiwifruit growers have a limited access to 'Hort16A', although the yellow flesh varieties are very appreciated in Korea. As a result a demand for Korean variety of gold kiwifruit was increasing. Fruit research institute of Jeonnam Agricultural Research and Extension Services (JARES) in Korea carried out a breeding program performing crosses between Actinidia chinensis species since mid-1990s. A round and very fruitful accession was selected from a 1997s cross between late 2002 and early 2003. The variety named 'Haegeum' in 2007 was grafted on 'Hayward' and followed in both experimental sites and farm orchards since then. 'Haegeum' flowers in mid-May and reaches maturity (disappearance of green color in fruit flesh) at mid-late October although some differences among cultural conditions and seasons were observed. The fruit average size is between 70 to 100 g and the soluble solid content after ripening is around 14 to 16%. This new selection was released and at the end of 2009 the potential acreages reached 25 ha in Korea.
