I was curious as to what type of produce earned such a 'colorful' label.  Grapefruit?  Oranges perhaps?  I think that Phelan & Taylor are no more. 

I was curious, too.
I did find a phone number and may give them a call this week to see if they can fill in the blanks about their Bikini brand.

It was pineapples, coconuts, mangoes and bananas.
Produce from Hawaii.

I'm surprised that you got somebody that knew the history of that label.  Good goin' Bart!

Here is a label from my own collection.  No illustrations, but I do like the bold, 3-D lettering.

Ha ha, I know.  Like Gravity pointed out we should be eating more fruit, though I think he was referring to melons.

A pear of melons that were on a real peach would be berry fine.
