Introducing the Giant Kiwifruit
Until now, it's always been Australia that has bragged about oversized fruit and vegetables masquerading as tourist attractions. But the new Lonely Planet Bluelist singles out New Zealand as the go-to destination for big things.
We're not sure if it's worth checking out, but in the spirit of fairness, we thought we should tell you about the huge kiwifruit to be found in the town of Te Puke. The giant slice of kiwifruit is part of the Kiwi360 attraction which features Kiwicarts, kiwi cuisine and a kiwi shop, too.
In fact, the whole Kiwi360 concept sounds kind of fun, and a tad educational as the Kiwicarts take you on a tour of the whole kiwifruit growing process. But we suspect at the end of the day--no matter how big the fruit is--there's definitely such a thing as too much kiwiana.
