I think it's the NZ thing. The kiwi fruit has had lots of different names over the years but in the '50s, New Zealand, mounted a marketing campaign in which they renamed the fruit as 'Kiwi fruit' to give them the edge in selling the huge amounts of the fruit they were growing. It made the fruit synonymous with NZ.
