On April 27, 1994 New Zealand issued a booklet of ten different "Kiwiana" (N.Z. life) stamps. One of the stamps (S.G. #1806) depicts two views of a Chinese gooseberry, which we know today (through marketing) as kiwifruit.

From Wikipedia, "Kiwifruit is native to central and eastern China. The first recorded description of the kiwifruit dates to the 12th century during the Song Dynasty. In the Early 20th century, cultivation of kiwifruit spread from China to New Zealand where the first commercial plantings occurred...Early varieties were described in a 1904 nursery catalogue as having 'edible fruits the size of walnuts' and the flavor of wild gooseberries."

This German cinderella of 1927 publicizes the Flowers and Fruit Exhibition held in the Frankfurt A.M. Banquet Hall. Some asparagus spears are shown among the fruit, perhaps because its greenery is attractive in floral arrangements after it is allowed to bolt.

Here is the Dominican Republic's 3c stamp commemorating "1980 Year of Agriculture". A banana farm is shown.

From interiordr.com website, "Around 500 banana varieties are planted in all tropical regions, although the Cavendish group varieties are the most highly cultivated in the world. Banana producers prefer the Cavendish for its resilient characteristics and its high resistance to disease."

Here is the 150 drachma value (Sc #1554a) from Greece's February 17, 1986 set of 12 stamps depicting the gods and goddesses of Mt. Olympus. Stamps were issued in sheet and booklet format. Booklet stamp is shown here. Demeter is shown holding a pomegranate branch in her right hand, and a lemon branch in her left hand.

From wikipedia, "...Demeter is the goddess of the harvest and agriculture, presiding over grains and the fertility of the earth...Demeter was frequently associated with images of the harvest, including flowers, fruit, and grain."
