Specialists in kiwifruit at WBG have constructed a kiwifruit germplasm repository  with the most diversified genetic resources and germplasms in the world. The Kiwifruit Germplasm Repository at Wuhan Botanical Garden conservers more than 70% of kiwifruit germplasm in the world. It was the only plant germplasm repository approved by Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2010.
