The Kiwi Bird

The Kiwi Bird

I would be willing to pay no more than $4 to see a small, flightless, nocturnal bird. Unfortunately the place charged $30 so this will be the extent of my interaction with New Zealand’s national bird.

    I thought kiwi was a fruit.



      Kiwi fruit, one type of exotic fruit, is the national fruit of China and hence also referred as Chinese gooseberry. The name of the Kiwi fruit has come from a brown flightless bird kiwi, native of New Zealand. This extensively recognized and superbly unique fruit is the most nutrient dense of all major fruits and is indigenous to eastern Chinese “Shaanxi” province. In china, kiwi fruits are named “macaque peach”. A sweet taste of the fruit, resembling a combination of banana, strawberry and pineapple, is liked by almost all people. These mouth-watering fruit offers wide variety of health benefits as they are fully packed with health promoting nutrients such as phyto-chemicals, minerals and vitamins.

    I wonder if the Kiwi bird tastes as good as the Kiwi fruit!
