Tropical fruit display at Publix

On the back page of Produce Merchandising, the header read "Don't expect mangoes when you plant papayas." I have no idea what that means. However, I did notice a large photo in the article of a Publix tropical fruit display. The photographer tried to turn the fruit over so you couldn't see a label, but he missed a couple.

Caribbean Reds are getting about half the display area as mangoes and almost as much as the pineapples. Not bad, given that mangoes and pineapples are the tropical front runners in sales.

And before you move on, did you see the SlimCado label to the far left?
