Any pictures?[edit]

This article could use a picture, especially for us folks who have never heard the word "punnet" before, but have probably seen thousands of them. zadignose (talk) 20:06, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Never mind, found one, added it. zadignose (talk) 21:07, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Regional[edit]

Per Wiktionary, the term is used in Britain, Australia and New Zealand. Never heard of it being used in the U.S. The New Shorter Oxford English Dictionary(1993) says its origin is England 19th century, possibly diminuitive of "pound." It does not appear at all in the The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language(1973). This article could be redirected to or merged with Basket, since it is basically a dictionary definition. Edison (talk) 19:29, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

See the references now added to the article, and discussion of 'punnet' as used in early strawberry horticulture in USA; it may be a term now out of use in America, but was once understood there. Please do not merge with 'basket'; Wikipedia is not an exclusively United States encyclopaedia. Thank you. Jamesmcardle(talk) 02:18, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
What do North Americans call a "punnet" then? Muzilon (talk) 02:40, 9 April 2020 (UTC)
