It's an old retail trick. Most sales are driven by a few core items but that would leave the store plain and uninspiring. The appearance of novelty items hits the old dopamine trigger, convincing the shopper into spending more time in the store. More time spent, more likely they are to pick up more of those "safe" items as well.

Persimmons? What the heck are those? I don't know, but those tomatoes look pretty good right now.
