Southern Special Apple Crate Label

SKU: CRL1040 $3.25 USD

Historic Overview

Although appearing to be from the southern United States, this label is actually from Yakima, Washington. Because the fruit is evaporated apples it was probably geared to the southern market since the dried fruit could last through the time to transport and it could save a late crop that might otherwise be spoiled. The fruit was packed by the Valley Evaporating Company of Yakima, Washington with branches also located in Wenatchee, Chelan Falls, and Oroville, Washington.

This colorful historical advertising collectible measures 10” Wide x 6.5” Tall, is in mint unused condition, and dates back to the 1950s. It features a scene of a small village with a planting field adjacent to a wide stream with an unusual array of plants. If you look close you will see deciduous trees, palm trees, and cactus all in the scene with mountains, hills, and valleys, an interesting combo obviously meant to please everybody.

To dry apples, processors convert them into many shapes and forms and dry them to various moisture levels. Evaporated apples range from 12% to 26% moisture and come sliced or diced, or in rings, chips or grinds. Dehydration reduces shipping and storage costs and extends shelf life. Once the apples are rehydrated, they can be used in the same manner as fresh or frozen fruit.

JuicyGold South Carolina Peach Label
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!
