Hy-Land Kids Apple Label (Red)
This is the red label that measures 10.4” Wide x 8.75” High and dates back to the 1940s. It pictures a child on a ladder cutting an apple for another kid on the grown who is holding the apple. The fruit was picked, packed, and shipped by the Cowiche Growers, Inc. from Cowiche, Washington. Cowiche Growers started in 1922 when a group of sixteen growers decided to form a cooperative organization to pack and sell their fruit. A committee was appointed to come up with a box label design to market their fruit and the Hy-land Kids design concept was chosen and patterned after the popular comic strip characters of the time, the "Kelly Kids."
Cowiche Growers' growth continued over the years with the addition of controlled atmosphere storage rooms and continued upgrades to packing equipment and facilities. Today, Cowiche Growers is still a leading producer of quality Yakima Valley apples.
This mint condition, very colorful, and whimsical label will make a great addition to your collection.
