I knew nothing about the Canary Islands until i read this quiz (i knew of them but nothing about them).
Then i was reading in a motorbike magazine and found this -
Gran Canaria, one of the largest of seven islands, apparently was home to an impressive breed of dog, cane in spanish, and was named after the breed. The rest of the islands were named after Gran Canaria and the birds named after the islands.

The things you can learn from motorbikes!

Also i seem to remember hearing that chinese gooseberry's where imported into New Zealand where they are called Kiwi Fruit, not sure if this is true or not.

Found this info

The history of the kiwifruit began in the Chang Kiang Valley of China. Called Yang Tao, it was considered a delicacy by the great Khans who relished the fruit's brilliant flavor and emerald-green color. Knowledge of the fruit expanded to other countries in the mid 1800s to 1900s. A collector for the Royal Horticultural Society of Britain send samples home in 1847, and another send seeds to England in 1900. Plants were first exported from China to the United States in 1904, and seeds were brought to New Zealand in 1906
