Spring has officially arrived, and with it comes the anticipation of color; soon, we will see tender green stems poking up from the soil. Flowers will bloom. Grass will grow. And vibrant colors will abound in nature and in grocery stores.

While bananas are a perennial fruit in the U.S.  – an astounding 96% of American households buy bananas at least once a month – it will soon be joined in stores by other in-season, colorful spring favorites: honeydew melons, blueberries, apricots, strawberries, and more. Banana merchandisers can capitalize on the beauty of these fellow fruits and create vivid, visual displays. No matter what surrounds them, bananas will always stand out due to their color, unique shape and international appeal.

As Easter weekend is here, use the appeal of the holiday and create fruit collections within bright, woven baskets. Perhaps parents looking for an alternative to chocolate and jelly beans will consider creating an Easter basket filled with healthy snacks. Fruit baskets make wonderful host gifts for children’s parties or festive centerpieces for family tables.

Use partitions to create patterns for displays of various-hued fruits. Produce department employees can use some creativity and craft an island display in the shape of a sunshine, a flower, a geometric pattern, and more. Or, keep it simple and create an alternating pattern of splashy-colored sections: yellow bananas, red strawberries, yellow lemons, red apples, etc. Regardless of how much time or space you have, using color-contrasting displays will help bananas garner attention while showcasing other fresh produce.
