Our Collection

The Catalog

We have now merged all known collections into one catalog of banana labels. Magnificent collections from our collectors Becky, Elvis, Erich, Gerri, John, Josef, Leee, Luis, Michael, Nico, Pablo, Patricio, Peter and many, many others. Here you will find now in total 31,000 different labels starting in 1913 with the AFC Tiko Kamerun.

The Catalog is NOT for free

This website is not for free

We are talking now many month about how to share the cost and how to keep the catalog up to date. I have many positive reactions about the catalog and many collectors are adding their labels and trade. But there are so far only 4 collectors who help in the cost and there is still a financial gap of 520€ each year.

New Banana Labels

New and beautiful banana stickers are added. Do you have the same label or a variant? Please help to get the catalog complete and add what you have found:

Are These Banana Labels?

We think, each label should be verified by at least two or three collectors. Help to identify misprints, other fruit labels and fakes. Please verify 5 labels per visit:

This is no banana label
✓✓ I doubt it is a banana label (misprint or fruit label)
✓✓✓ I have no further information about this label
✓✓✓✓ I believe it is a banana label
✓✓✓✓✓   Yes (100% certain)

I have doubts about the correctness of the specified sticker sizes. Specified width: 19 mm. at a height of 18 mm is a complete mismatch of the image. In addition, I have such a sticker with a height of 18 and a width of 24 mm.

It is Kaufland (https://www.kaufland.com/). It is German hypermarkets. I think it is not for Russian.

Yes, I do believe it is from a banana. FRAUD means not FAKE.

There is somewhere an article in the article section where I started to classify our labels: Banana Label, Bag Label, Hang Tag, Inspection Label, Trial Label, Wrapper, Promotion and many more. Also Fraud and Fake labels are included in this list.

FRAUD are the labels where some has stolen the design or brandname and is using it to pimp up no-name bananas. For me is China the world champion in using foreign designs. In this case from Turbana. I do not know if it is true, but I always think of a small fruit shop, where the owner is buying local bananas and add a home made label to make the banana look more expensive. I really love this kind of labels and like to get them.

In the 'search' you will find at the moment 20 other FRAUDS with designs stolen from Chico, Dedore, Carmelita or Chiquita. Sometimes it is not easy to distinguish original and stolen designs but the Chiquitas are great.

Does this answer your question?


P.S.: And I would appeciate when some collectors also have fun to give a structure or taxonomy to our 31000 labels and help to get the articles complete or give a second opinion. In the gallery are also some example pictures that are quite incomplete and need rework.

China did not join trade mark agreements ...

Peter is correct. There were promo sets distributed by Chiquita that were never used on bananas. Several collectors, myself included, have these promo sets. I do not have it on my site. But labels absolutely did appear on bananas as well. Gerri was confused about that for several years but also came to understand that this is the case. I have had a small end of a roll as well. The labels on the roll were all the same, similar to the Minnesota Vikings roll that you show.
