Pursuit Brand Grape Crate Label
$2.55
This great crate label is the Pursuit Brand of Grapes and features a super image of a fighter pilot in his World War II era combat plane. The fruit was grown and packed by the Exeter Fruit Association of Exeter, California. This label measures 12.75” Wide x 4” High and the presence of a zip code after the city/state indicates that the label is circa 1960s. It features the blue anchor of the California Fruit Exchange. Organized in 1901, the California Fruit Exchange, a marketing cooperative of independent fruit growers and shippers, sold its products under the brand name Blue Anchor. Headquartered in Sacramento, California, the company quickly grew into the largest marketer of consistently high quality fresh deciduous fruits in the American West. At its peak it represented approximately 1,000 growers of tree fruits and table grapes. To help realize its objectives, the California Fruit Exchange developed and promoted its Blue Anchor brand with the largest, strongest, and best marketing organization in the deciduous fresh fruit industry. However, in 2000, the Blue Anchor Company announced "…one of the last mighty fruit marketing cooperatives is packing it in after nearly 100 years in business." Officials noted that during the previous ten years, the cooperative had been steadily losing members who had started their own packinghouses and/or had joined with others to launch their own marketing efforts. The Blue Anchor trademark now exists only on the pages of highly collectible labels. WE GUARANTEE ALL LABELS TO BE AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED!
Fireball Brand South Carolina Peach Crate label
$2.00
This South Carolina peach crate label is both fun and rare. The Fireball brand features a peach comet shooting across the dark blue label. The dramatic curved label measures approximately 9" Wide x 2.7" High and comes from the Ridge Peach & Vegetable Association which was a group of growers from Ridge Spring, Johnston, Trenton & Monetta, S.C. Fireball's sales office was in Ridge Spring. We believe this label dates to the 1950s or earlier. 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.
