Historic Overview

This is an impressive mint condition crate label measuring 10” Wide x 7.5” High from the 1950s. It features the image of a cabin beside Lake Wenatchee with the Central Cascades Mountain Range in the distance and a beautiful cluster of pears. The label was lithographed for Lake Wenatchee Pears of Cashmere, Washington by Schmidt Litho Company of San Francisco. 


Local Native American lore claims that the name Wenatchee (Wa-Nat-Chee) comes from a poetic description of the area meaning “robe of the rainbow.” Which is appropriate for this lush valley sitting 600 feet above sea level. Today it is known as the apple capital of the World with over 170,000 acres of orchards including pears.

Natures Brand Avocado Crate Label
$2.35
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.
