A Fruity Problem

Professor Egghead's nephew spent a summer working as a stockboy for a large grocery store. It was a rather unusual grocery store, however, and they had a very strange way of arranging the fruit in the fresh produce area.

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 the young man wasn't sure where to put it. Where would you put a crate labeled strawberry?

The second group.. sorted alphabetically by the first letter of the fruits name? Presumably half and half.. A-L and M-Z?

The only thing I can think of!
