Historic Overview

This Florida Crate label is from the 1950s and measures 9" Wide x 3.4" High. It features a pinup girl of the era with the classic pearl necklace and is a good representation of the styles of the 1950s. The fruit was packed and shipped by the Lake Region Packing Association of Tavares, Florida. The label was lithographed by Louis Roesch Co. of San Francisco, California.

The Lake Region Packing Association was formed in 1909, and is Florida’s oldest citrus cooperative. In 2004 it joined as the newest member of Dundee Citrus Growers Association. This consolidation created an organization positioned to better serve the growers, marketers and consumers through increased efficiency while still providing access to quality citrus fruit. 

Add our other ladies of the Florida citrus industry and create a striking collage of labels for framing. These will look great together and they are all original.

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!
