What’s up with the marketing department for the National Council of Orange Growers? (An imaginary organization so far as I know, but there’s got to be something along those lines…)

It occurs to me that the apple guys have been working overtime. Go to the grocery store and you have:

  • Granny Smith
  • Pacific Rose
  • Envy
  • Jazz
  • Cripps Pink
  • Honeycrisp
  • Gala
  • Golden Delicious
  • Red Delicious
  • Fuji
  • Opal

and more that aren’t in season right now. There are dozens of varieties of apples!

Even the pear guys have some variety – Bartlet pears, red pears, Bosc pears, and Anjou pears just in the store today. And that’s just at the neighborhood Ralph’s. If you go to a Trader Joe’s they’ve go all sorts of weird pears.


Jumbo – Large – Medium.

They aren’t even different types at all, they’re just split by how big they are!

C’mon, NCOG marketers, get your act together!

In other news, my brain isn’t always quite right at the grocery store…

  1. Hmm, same on this side of the pond. Save for blood oranges, navels and Sevilles (for marmalade making) in season, it’s just oranges.
