There's quite a bit of anger in Kiwi Land that others were allowed to take New Zealand stock and start growing it in places like British Columbia without the same grading rules.
Update: Apparently root stock was first exported to Italy and Israel with the idea this would promote kiwifruit but in the off-season when it wouldn't compete with NZ fruit.

This may be like Chianti. The best grade is rarely exported from Italy.
