Banana Label Collecting

Banana-label collecting is not only a thing. It has an active community of collectors.

One of the top collectors is Becky Martz who now has over 22,630 labels. She's archived them at her website, Becky's Gone Bananas.



You can also check out the BananaLabel Catalog of the Produce Real Society. There's not many labels to see on their website, but they sell a master catalog of 31,000 labels going all the way back to 1913.

Get 'em while you can! I hear tell that the Cavendish banana is slowly suffering from a widespread fungus and may become a luxury in the future.

You dry it in the oven first, silly. Then you can Trip on a Banana Peel.

No wierder than collecting stamps, after all. Or cigar bands, or orange wrappers.
