Goleta Lemons Crate label
This striking 10.75” Wide x 8.5” High crate label features a dark background that sets off the bold yellow lettering and the image of a sailing ship off the California coast. This original, mint 1940s label was used for famous Santa Barbara County lemons, packed by the Goleta Lemon Association of Goleta, California.
The Goleta Lemon Association began in the late 1800s and grew to eventually include more than 2500 acres, about three-fourths of the valley's crops. Their lemons were wrapped in yellow or white tissue paper called onion skins and shipped to the Chicago market. They continued until 1976 when they were purchased by interests in the Central Valley and later sold to the Santa Barbara Lemon Association which operated until 1986.
