JuicyGold South Carolina Peach Label
$1.80
This South Carolina peach crate label measures 8" Wide x 2.87" High and features a golden peach on a black and blue background. It comes from the Ridge Peach & Vegetable Association which was a group of growers from Ridge Spring, Johnston, Trenton & Monetta, S.C. JuicyGold's sales office was in Ridge Spring. We believe this label dates to the 1950s.   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!
White Collar Avocado Crate label
$2.65
This attractive avocado crate label measures 12.5” Wide x 3.25” Tall and features a beautiful blonde woman wearing a large white collar. It is very appropriate for the times since the label dates to the 1950s. E. & G. Avocado Company was the packer and shipper. They listed the address as 751 South Central Avenue, Los Angeles, California, but their farm was in La Habra. 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.
