Name kumara New Zealand's official national vegetable

Kaipara Kumara started this petition to New Zealand Government

It's pretty obvious that kumara should be the official National Vegetable of New Zealand. It has such a long history of cultivation here. The early Maori settlers originally brought Kumara to New Zealand over one thousand years ago. It’s also an incredibly versatile vegetable and something that most people enjoy eating – there aren't many Kiwis that would say no to kumara, whether it is roasted, mashed, steamed or fried! 

We are going up against beetroot, who have also put in a bid to be named New Zealand's official National Vegetable. Please sign this petition if you think that is wrong and that kumara is the only New Zealand vegetable that deserves the title!

We have until the close of The Food Show in Auckland on Sunday 2 August to get as many signatures as we can.
