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

The Catalog is NOT for free

When we started the catalog, I rented a small environment of computers to use it with this content management system. I was suprised when the catalog and the number of collectors was growing that we need a much more professional technical infrastructure. Something you can't operate by yourself.

The Catalog needs Cooperation

In the last 5 years we have added 22,719 labels to the catalog. We merged all known collections into this catalog and added all new labels issued during this time. 61% of this work was done by me, 25% by Peter and then Nico is following by 5%. That means 91% of this task was done by only three collectors.

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)

Your picture is not lost, both are added here. And it is absolutley correct to have in the own collection some more labels than we have here in the catalog. Some differences are too small to recognize at the computer screen.

I have done many trades, but I think this kind of FAIRTRADE label was never involved

@ Michael: Put against the two I can find a difference but I suspect it is a case of the eye of the beholder. I will keep it in my collection but accept your interpretation

@Bert: Your label is already here: sorry I deleted the one you have added today. I compared it with Photoshop and there is definitely no difference

At the EC set from 2019 the farmnumber is smaller. It starts below the 'a' of EDEKA and not below the 'k' like it is in the previous version.
