The Kiwi (Actinidia Deliciosa) was exported, for the first time ever, from China to New Zeland in 1906. The commercial cultivation started on 1950 by botanist Hayward Wright in the Bay of Plenty (?).
On 1952 the first kiwis from New Zeland were imported to Great Britain and sold at Covent Garden. Then they spread all around the world.
So, kiwis people themselves adopted the kiwi in 1959, giving to it the name of their national (and in estinction, I would add) bird, that by-the-bye is a unique little bird who makes an enourmous egg 10 times greater than the bird itself. The male of this bird must continously bring ice to his wife, so to calm down her big big pain......not joking.

Hope this can help.

p.s.

Artemisia66, congrats for your nice work.

Funny a lot of that was news to me too , if however by "(and in estinction, I would add)" you meant that the Kiwi is extinct then that really is news to me, in danger of would be closer I believe, and sadly it is not alone. Actually if I remember correctly they did find out a few years ago that not every Kiwi is a Kiwi but that one group of them was actually something else.....at least genetically not a Kiwi (and I won't be surprised if wabbits try and make a joke out of that one too).... actually I'll have to check up on that my self as I really am only speaking from vague memory. True though quite a unique little bird, although that can be said for a lot of NZ's bird life.....kinda miss NZ bird song too to be honest
