The completed chloroplast genome sequence of Actinidia hemsleyana, collected from eastern China, was firstly determined using next-generation sequencing (NGS) and bioinformatic analysis. The length of cp genome was 156,845 bp, including a large single-copy (LSC) region of 88,666 bp and a small single-copy (SSC) region of 20,543 bp, which were separated by a pair of inverted repeats (IRs) of 23,818 bp. The cp genome contained 132 genes, including 83 protein-coding genes, 41 tRNA genes, and 8 rRNA genes. The overall GC content was 37.19%, whereas the corresponding values of the LSC, SSC, and IR regions were 35.46%, 31.09%, and 43.06%, respectively. Phylogenetic analysis based on whole cp genome sequences of 20 Actinidia species showed that A. hemsleyana has the closest relationship with A.latifolia.
