Chazy Orchards Apple Crate Label

SKU: CRL1027 $2.95 USD

Historic Overview

A leading grower of McIntosh apples in the Northeast, this Chazy Orchards Apple Crate Label measures 10.25” Wide x 7” High and is in mint unused condition. The label is circa 1940s and depicts an orchard. The apples were grown and packed by Chazy Orchards of Chazy, New York, the largest McIntosh Orchard in the world.

The original Chazy orchard was planted in 1924-25-26 by a subsidiary of the Delaware and Hudson Railroad Corporation. Originally there were planted 29,000 McIntosh, 6,673 Snows, 3,226 Northern Spy, 685 Cortland, 82 Lowry, and 500 miscellaneous varieties. There were a total of 43,180 trees in the planting after the spring of 1931. The winter of 1934 took a heavy toll on the orchards of the Northeast, and Chazy Orchards did not escape. Through the years they have added and renovated the orchards. Today there are roughly 80,000 trees maintained and the Company rents about 600 colonies of honey bees to pollinate the blossoms, since most varieties are self sterile. The orchard is now owned and operated by Donald F. Green III.

Large White Collar Avocado Crate label
This is the older White Collar label. It measures 13” Wide x 5” High and dates to the 1940s. The label has a red diagonal band across a black background. E. & G. Avocado Company was the packer and shipper from La Habra, California. In 1926 a postman named Rudolph G. Hass decided to try his hand at growing avocados on a 1.5 acre plot in La Habra, California, that he’d used all his savings to purchase. Hass bought several experimental seedling trees to plant. Once the trees reached a sufficient size, Hass attempted to graft different avocado varieties onto them, a common practice that speeds up fruit production. However, one tree proved resistant to grafting, so Hass planned to cut it down. But his children talked him out of it, because they liked the taste of that particular tree’s fruit. The spared tree turned out to produce abundant fruit with great nutty taste. It resisted damage during travel, had a very long shelf life and year-round growing season. In short, Rudolph Hass was producing avocados with unique commercial advantages. In August 1935, he obtained a patent for his new avocado variety, which he named after himself, Hass.  Rudolph Hass’ patent expired in 1952, the year he died. Today the Hass has become the “super avocado.” It accounts for 95% of the avocado production in California. The Hass “mother tree” that started it all continued producing fruit in La Habra Heights for 76 years, but she finally succumbed to root rot in 2002.
