30 Bananas a Day!

So I'm excited to learn more about fruit....trying new fruits is fun but...it's annoying to me that when you start only buying things in the produce section...the cashiers tend not to know what the items are. I believe I got charged a lot more for a product then I should have, because they put the fruit down under the wrong name. I wasn't sure what it was so I asked her and she said she thinks it is a pear...It was some kind of papaya. She also didn't know what a starfruit was. I want to try new fruits but I don't want to end up paying a bunch more money for something I didn't even buy. They didn't have all the fruit marked with picture and names like most of them have. 

 

Anyone else have issues with cashiers not knowing what things are? 

I'm a fruit newb, but still think that those selling the fruit should know something about it...atleast the NAME yanno?

Am I asking too much? XD

That's our lot in life, Neko!

They barely teach the three R's in skool these days, much less the names of fruit! ;)

Pretty soon you'll be easily recognizing and enjoying fruits even you'd never seen before.

So true, I remember seeing kids being asked what fries were made of...they didn't know what a potato was and I was like o.O eyes got really big like that YEP hehe.

If ever there was a WTFudge, this is it:

I feel so bad for those kids 0.O
I feel bad for that show...It was really good and it got cancelled! Sure, they aren't pushing a raw vegan lifestyle :), but healthier than the processed crap most Americans eat...
just do the math before you get to the register or else! Lol they'll even get the prices of the same variety of fruit wrong..... Some times it works in your favor but for the times it doesn't you want to keep your eye on them.
yeah...i guess I can't be so lazy anymore. It would be nice to not have to worry about it but...it's worth taking the time to do the math before hand. Thanks Ronald :)
Your welcome, lets not forget that the cashier are human. That and they probably don't like their jobs, don't care about fruit lol, and their not required to know about any of the products in the store just specials.
I thought they were ALIENS....jk :D I didn't know that they are only required to know so little. That makes more sense. I thought since produce doesn't have barcodes that they had to do some studying on them but I thought wrong. yep yep o.O Time to go study up on fruit!

They get paid minimum wage their not required to know much outside of working the register. :-/

 

All produce has a PLU code that cashiers need to enter after weighing your bag. This site has most/all of the produce codes listed by the fruit name alphabetically.

It has definitely helped me since I am still learning about different fruits and trying to pay for exactly what I intend to purchase.  Print a copy and bring it with you to the store till you can get most of the common ones memorized.  Remember the more produce you bring through a cashiers line, the more they are forced to learn about new fruits.

wow!  I didn't realize that the codes where not specific to stores. This helps a lot :D Thanks Dommy!
