Sunny Slope Farms South Carolina Peach Crate Label

SKU: CRL1091 $3.00 USD

Historic Overview

Sunny Slope Farms in South Carolina actually began in New Jersey. Although this might seem unusual it was because Vincent Caggiano came to America at the age of 16 to work on a New Jersey farm. After diligently saving his money, Vincent started growing peaches on his own farm in 1914. The business grew and in 1943, three of his sons started the farm in Gaffney, South Carolina. The farm in Gaffney grew to 2,500 acres, but that changed in the 1990s when the family decided to close the South Carolina farm and sell the property. The final land holdings were sold in 2007. The property in New Jersey is still going strong and has grown to over 1,000 acres. Today Sunny Slope still operates in New Jersey and is run by Vincent’s son, Al, and his kids. The company is still family owned and they maintain the original tradition of growing peaches that are "just a little bit better".

This Sunny Farms peaches label dates back to the 1960s and measures 9” Wide x 7.5” High. It is a very dramatic label with its dark blue background and center image of an antique racecar and driver. The racer is flanked by peaches on either side and underneath the motto that is the reason for the race car, “The Leader”, Through Research. This hard to find label will look great mounted.

Natures Brand Avocado Crate Label
This avocado label measures 11” Wide x 3.25” High and dates to the 1940s. The label has the traditional red diagonal band (Common for this grower) across an avocado green background. E. & G. Avocado Company was the packer and shipper from La Habra, California. 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.
