Full Brand Florida Citrus Crate Label

SKU: CRL1067 $2.95 USD

Historic Overview

Our Full Brand Citrus label measures 9” Wide x 4.5” High and features the unique image of an Orange tree’s limbs and leaves forming a man holding a freshly picked orange. The label was produced for the Waverly Growers Cooperative of Waverly, Florida in the 1940s or 1950s.

The Waverly Growers Cooperative was founded in 1914 by eight growers and was incorporated in 1935. Later it joined Florida's Natural Growers as one of the 12 grower organizations representing almost 1,000 individual growers who own nearly 50,000 acres of citrus trees in Florida. You might be familiar with Florida's Natural Growers since they run extensive TV advertising dispensing homespun witticisms while pointing out that only Florida's Natural uses only Florida orange juice.

Fireball Brand South Carolina Peach Crate label
This South Carolina peach crate label is both fun and rare. The Fireball brand features a peach comet shooting across the dark blue label. The dramatic curved label measures approximately 9" Wide x 2.7" High and comes from the Ridge Peach & Vegetable Association which was a group of growers from Ridge Spring, Johnston, Trenton & Monetta, S.C. Fireball's sales office was in Ridge Spring. We believe this label dates to the 1950s or earlier. Ridge Spring, South Carolina, was settled over 250 years ago and is still populated by decendants of some of the original families. First incorporated on December 23, 1882, the town held a Centennial Celebration in the Fall of 1982. Beautiful plantation houses were built throughout the area after the Revolutionary War. Many of these lovely homes have survived and grace the countryside. The town was named Ridge Spring for the natural raised ridge of the land and for the spring of pure water which provided delicious drinking water.  Cotton began as an important crop in the early 1800s. Vast acreages were grown for many generations and transported by wagon to Hamburg, S. C. for shipment by barge to Savannah, Georgia. From early days the cultivation of the peach seemed particularly suited to the soil and climate of The Ridge. Through the years other crops such as corn, asparagus, soybeans, cotton and numerous more have been grown in the fertile soil of Ridge Spring.  There is an annual Harvest Festival each October. The charm and gracious southern living of this agrarian community continues today for those who call “the Ridge” their home and for those who are fortunate enough to visit. WE GUARANTEE OUR LABELS TO BE AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED!
