Red face Re: Marketing bananas in the US

In the 7/24 LA TM Report the following was shown: ---BANANAS: MARKET STEADY. 40 lb cartons MX 13.00-14.00 poorer
quality/condition lower Burro 10.50-11.00 ZZ 14.50-17.50 mostly 16.00-16.50 20
lb cartons CB BOAT Manzano 14.50-15.00 EC BOAT Red 10.50-11.50 mostly
10.50-11.00 15 lb cartons EC BOAT Baby 10.00-12.00 mostly 10.00-11.00 cartons
institutional pack EC BOAT petite 15.00-16.00

Can someone please explain what is being quoted in this report as I have no clue as to what ZZ or petite are other than pricey. I noticed at the end of the report that 40# of the organic ZZ bananas are fetching 22.00 to 22.50.
