Kiwi Looks Like Kiwi

The Kiwi is the National Bird of New Zealand, even the people who live there are affectionately called "Kiwis".
One man's love of the bird extends even to fruit. Yes there is a Kiwi fruit that sort of looks like a Kiwi:

But this fruit found in Shavon Green's backyard in Auckland really nailed the look. Christchurch businessman Mike Pero paid $1000 for it at auction, conditional on a $500 donation to The Child Cancer Foundation. Everyone was happy. He got his Kiwi, she got much more than the going rate for the fruit, and a worthy charity got a nice donation.

All for the love of a Kiwi!
