    Just a minor note – the correct name is just ‘kiwi’.

    Saying ‘Kiwi bird’ is a bit like saying “Bald Eagle Bird”.

    Heh “Kiwi bird”? Writer (or audience) must be from the east side of the ocean. (No points for guessing that). I’m going to file the awkward clarification under ‘comeuppance for the provincial dropping of the last syllable of “kiwifruit”‘ (which was named for the bird).
    The trade-off is probably worth it, since Americans probably speak of the fruit more often, and fortunately the habit doesn’t seem to have reached passion fruit :-)

      Passion fruit is not generally consumed in the US except in restaurants where the white truffle flan with passion fruit aioli appetizer sells for $37.
