Above the handle hole is a single line in green printed table with numbers, in green, '' 6, 9 12, 15th and 18th''. Above the table is the lettering in green, ''COUNT.'' Underneath the handle hole is a white label in black lettering and the United Product Code that reads ''TropiFresh Carrillo Lote: 010-02-007 Ano: 2007.'' Below this is the United Product Code lines which has the following numbers below the bars reading, ''100200703707.'' The white sticker covers up the ''Tropi'' green lettered name but the orange lettered ''fresh'' is shown. The green letter ''T'' in Tropifresh is actually a palm tree with the bottom of the truck continuing as a swish below the company full name. Under the swish in green letter reads, Quality Melons.'' Below the Tropifresh in the center appears the following green lettered printing reading, ''CANTALOUPES (Cucumis melo). Underneath this reads in green lettering, ''Produced and packed by Tropifresh de Costa Rica S.A. Cod. REG. MAG 2017.''

The label reads top to bottom, ''TropiFresh Carrillo Lote: 010-02-009 Ano: 2007.'' The United Product Code lines follow with the numbers under the lines unreadable. There is a yellow circle in the left middle of the blue part of the box with the following word, ''fyffes.'' Below this word is a white banding strap that runs across the box, left to right and cuts through two cantaloupes one on top of the other.
