Goleta Lemons Crate label

SKU: CRL1017 $3.25 USD

Historic Overview

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.

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!
