When Levik was a young man he spent a summer working as a stockboy for a large grocery store. It was a rather strange grocery store, however, and they had a very peculiar way of arranging the fruit.
In one group you would find any of the following fruits:
apple, banana, grape, and orange.
In a different area you would find fruits like:
mango, nectarine, peach, and pear.
One day a new crate of fruit arrived and Levik wasn't sure where to put it. Where would you put a crate labeled strawberry?

Except that: aren't a nectarine and an orange similar wrt their
seeds? Plus it seems to me a single strawberry is a lot of seeds,
like each little bump is a whole seed.
I think it has something to do with the letters of the words, but I haven't been able to find the link yet.
