Delight and attract shoppers with weird and wonderful exotic fruit displays

LOS ALAMITOS, CA (September 2016) — Shoppers are looking for stranger things this Halloween, and there is no better place than the produce department.

“Alien-looking tropical fruits always turn up in science fiction movies and television shows because of their unique look. Halloween is the perfect time to show them off,” said Karen Caplan, president and CEO of Frieda’s Specialty Produce. “Let your produce teams use their creativity and build fun displays for Halloween with all the ‘weird stuff’ usually hidden in the back of the department.

“This is the time to let the freak flag fly in the produce department, so to speak,” added Caplan.

Halloween classic spooky foods include Kiwano®, Buddha’s hand citron, dragon fruit, rambutan, blood oranges, and chayote squash. New, trending favorites now include jackfruit, ghost peppers, organic finger limes, and turmeric.
