Title: Fruit and Vegetable Labels
Post by: Rikki Gins on September 12, 2018, 03:57:28 PM
Here is an interesting and colorful collectible for some people.  Fruit and vegetable labels that were usually attached to wooden crates or bins of produce.  They were primarily used for identifying the type of produce in a crate and they also contained the name of the company that packed the items.  There are virtually thousands of produce labels out there and you might have even seen them in your produce aisle at the grocery store, though most produce boxes are made out of cardboard now.

These labels go way, way back and are usually quite colorful in design.  I had a job once where I came into contact with produce bins, and I was taken with the labels so I began to carefully peel them off without ripping them.  I think I collected about 30 of them and will show them to you as time goes by, but like I said, there are scads of pretty cool looking ones that can also be found on the internet.  Some of the labels are pretty cool in design, especially the ones that show people (lots of kids) and cartoonish characters, like apples with faces, etc.  Some are kind of humorous too.

This first one from my collection is in fairly poor shape but it is used to illustrate that produce labels can also be somewhat suggestive in nature.

Bart, Walks and Gravity...  Thank you, boys, for helping to jumpstart this thread.

You’re welcome. I won’t always comment but I read and enjoy all of your posts. Here, postcards and 100 year thread. My grandfather owned a general store and butcher shop when I was a toddler. Somewhere I have a picture of me sleeping in a rectangular peach crate while being wheeled around on a dolly by my father. It was like the ones that used those labels. I picked Macintosh apples to make extra money when I was in the air force and we used wood crates like those too. It was a long time before I could eat a Macintosh  apple.

It's an interesting little topic.  One I never would have thought of to bring up. 

I've been taking a walk on the wild side this week but will be coming home soon.

I used to pick apples after my highschool classes.  There was only a one hour or so window before sundown, so I'd be lucky to make $5.00 for each afternoon's work.  My grandfather and his brother picked apples for a company that used crate labels.  It was a pretty cool label.  I have a copy of it but have never been able to locate an original anywhere.  I'm hoping to show it for Halloween.  I wish I could have seen your grandfather's store and butcher shop.  Bet it was pretty nice in there.

There are some fascinating produce labels out there that I think you will enjoy, Walks.  After your walk, that is.

I should eat more fruit.

I should eat more fruit.

I was curious as to what type of produce earned such a 'colorful' label.  Grapefruit?  Oranges perhaps?  I think that Phelan & Taylor are no more.  Oh, there are still some remnants of it on the internet, but there are blank places when it comes to any solid information on the place.  I did come across an interesting 1977 court case that involved the company.  It seems that a couple of Teamsters entered P & T's property and beat up a couple of Latino (?) guys who were members of the United Farm Workers.  To make the long story short, the Teamsters lost and had to make an unspecified payment to right the wrongs. (The lawyers got $6,500.00.)  In any event, the guys who got beat up were picking celery.

I got a bunch of fruit from what I thought was a Mandarin Orange tree. However the fruit is substantially bigger than the stuff sold in stores and the peel is not the bright orange. The taste is also far more tart or sour. The tree is about 10ft tall and approximately 6 years old. We've had a substantial amount of rain the past month and I'm told too much rain and less drainage and less light can make oranges more sour?  But I also see that there are varieties of oranges that are sour (apparently used for liquors, perfume, herbal remedies, etc.) So who knows?

There is an orange tree called the Bitter Orange, also know as the Sour Orange.  I wonder if that is the kind of tree that you have?

Thanks, I was thinking of that but the tree has no thorns and the fruit seems larger. Though from simple research, that is online search haha, it would appear hybridization is common in citrus and after hard freezes a "new" variety can even grow up because of grafting etc. Who knows? I ate one and it wasn't bad, but sour/tart but still "orangey" taste, an interesting taste. Might appeal to the kids these days what with their apparently love for "sour" candy? Shall I give them out for Halloween trick-or-treaters?

Mandarins are a type of satsuma. If they are easy to peel they are probably satsuma but some types are more sour than others.

Thanks. I'm guessing you are right. Fruit is large, coming in early, easy to peel, and no seeds in the one I ate.  The only thing is the coloration and sour/tartness but it is mentioned that rootstock most often used in South TX is "sour orange" and different varieties of satsumas.  Also some sites say that too much rain can result in more sourness. And we've had that the past month. Some of the fruit was even busted open like melons do with too much water. So who knows?

Just for you, I will post an aggie site with more information:

Probably Texas oranges and Ruby Red Grapefruits. No idea really. Don’t see them much anymore but when I first moved here in 72 you would see people parked on the side of the road selling oranges and grapefruit. I’ve seen that in Florida before too.

Here is my original Mr. Nectarine label and you can see how it has deteriorated from being poorly stored.  I had thought that the labels were dry but some dampness got to them.  They were stacked together so the white you see on the label is from the back of the label that was above it.  Most of my labels came out better than this one.  Oh well, at least you can see Mr. Nectarine's head.

You would think that there would be lots of potato labels but I'm not sure I've seen any yet.  I think one reason is because potatos might be shipped in big gunny sacks, at least they used to be when I was a kid.  Yams and sweet potatoes have company labels though, and you will see them on occasion here.

Thanks, Gravity.  Ha, I spent some time over there last night and when I went back to my earlier posts, I could hardly remember posting some of them.  I mentioned that in a post and I think Michael thought that I was intimating that other people had been adding posts or something.  No, they were definitely mine, I guess that with so many posts being made over the years, it wouldn't be possible to remember each and every one of them.  But you are right, it is fun to see all of the old posts again.

Hi Shay, thanks, I hadn't realized that potato labels were made that way.  I am very gratified that you like the thread.  Kind of nice that everything stayed the same over there, now I can revisit some of the posts that I wish that I had never posted, haha.

Well, you have a lot of work to do sir.  Cutting and pasting all those posts and copying them in your thread here.  Don't worry.  We'll wait.   :D  ;)

Haha, thanks.  We should remember though, Mr. Liberace owns all of the stuff that has been posted there.  I don't want to open a can of worms, or anything, know what I mean?  :)

He only thinks he owns the copy he has. He doesn’t own copies of the copies he has. He doesn’t even own what he thinks he owns. I’m not sure he even owns that Moroccan pancho.

No, not kidding.  This was a legitimate vegetable crate label, I think from the 1960's.  It probably was from the 60's because if anything sold back then, it was sex.  A couple of different growers utilized the art work for their shipping labels.

What lawyer or reasoning made them put "on Lake Apopka" on the labeling in quotes? FLA is a crazy place, in many ways, but look how the area is, basically, "on" various lakes, swamps,etc. This lake is in the upper-right corner in picture.

ps: Historically, more than 85 percent of the phosphorus going into Lake Apopka was from farms on the lake’s north shore. To combat this problem, the District and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) purchased almost all of the farms for restoration between 1988 and 2001. This contributed to reducing discharges of excessive nutrients from farms to the lake. [from wikipedia]

Yes, those must be knife cuts, but what an odd design, like mimicking the orange segments or going for a flower effect? I saw a video where a person used a knife but it was for peeling the whole orange and not making a clever presentation piece.

Thank you @DynamoHum, I didn't know that tidbit of knowledge but it certainly makes sense, label-wise.  Winter Haven was also the site of Cypress Gardens, which closed back in 2009, except for the garden part which can still be seen at Legoland.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cypress_Gardens

Yum, I like that tomato, Shay.  I'd like to have a big cheeseburger with a nice fat slice of that tomato on top.  (With a slice of onion, and lettuce, and some ketchup and mustard, that is.)  Is that tomato extra big due to the fertilizer in the soil?  That name, James G. Tinsley might be the Richmond gentleman who was a pioneer in the fertilizer industry.  (We are talking way back here, the dude was in the Civil War.)  After he left the fertilizer industry he was involved in 'other businesses' and I wonder if one of them was growing produce?

That's a lot of pickles.  I think I'd rather eat 50 hard boiled eggs in one hour.

Thanks, @BartEllProducer.  Yes, it's kind of a roll of the dice on whether certain info can be found regarding these labels.  Usually a packing company name, or it's owner will lead to something but also might be too generic in nature and will only match up with newer packing houses, etc.  Also, a lot of my searches lead right back to the label itself, haha.  In the case of the American Fruit Growers, Inc. label below, I got lucky and found a picture of (I'm assuming) their main office bldg. or a packing house, plus a couple of court cases that they were involved in.  That's one thing about these fruit growers, they were often involved in lawsuits.  I'm no Perry Mason, but I do enjoy reading the judges decisions regarding some of these cases.  Some of them I don't quite understand and I'm hoping that mr. @albrecht will read them and give us the court's outcome in layman's terms.   I think one of those court decisions below (American Fruit Growers v. Parker) involved an apples/oranges lawsuit.  Only in this case, it was an orange/grapefruit court battle.

A quick scan, basically the Fruit Company was suing Cunard over spoilage etc and Cunard was claiming Washington State was not the proper jurisdiction because they were only soliciting business there; not actually operating there. But they had an office in Seattle. Both sides gave their arguments and case law and it was decided that it was proper for Cunard to be sued in Washington State courts and wasn't an undue burden etc. And so Cunard motion to dismiss was denied, as was the other motion to dismiss in the other pending case, and so the case(s) continue....

A brief read is that the court said basically their washing process is not patent-able because it is not materially improving, changing, reforming, etc the fruit. After the borax process (or whatever) you still end up with a lemon, or whatever, fruit.

Thanks for the court decision interpretations mr. @albrecht.  I surprised myself by reading the entire 'soaking oranges in borax is a process, not an invention' case.  It took me like twenty minutes to get through it.  I noticed that before the decision, American Fruit Growers were forbidden to use the process on their oranges.  Also I liked how the Supreme Court judges brought forth information from previous trials.  In fact, one of them was from an Anheuser-Busch Brewing case.
Quote
And in Anheuser-Busch Brewing Ass'n v. United States, 207 U.S. 556, 562 , 28 S. Ct. 204, 206, where it was claimed that corks for bottles which had undergone special treatment after importation thereby became articles manufactured in the United States, this Court said: 'Manufacture implies a change, but every change is not manufacture, and yet every change in an article is the result of treatment, labor, and manipulation. But something more is necessary, as set forth and illustrated in Hartranft v. Wiegmann, 121 U. S. [283 U.S. 1, 13]   609, 7 S. Ct. 1240. There must be transformation; a new and different article must emerge 'having a distinctive name, character, or use."
   
Did you see the familiar name in that American Fruit Growers v. Parker case? 
Quote
COUNSEL:  Earl Warren, Attorney General, Robert W. Kenny, Attorney General, Walter L. Bowers, Deputy Attorney General, Ivan G. McDaniel and George C. Lyon for Appellants.

@Rikki Gins
An interesting up-bringing and distinguished and interesting career. Among other things- and since it is Veteran's Day, let us note that he tried to sign up but the Army wouldn't take him due to hemorrhoids! Too much sitting around as a lawyer?   ;) But he had an operation and was able to join up but soon after Armistice Day happened, so never in the field. But note the differences between back then and some more recent times. Trying, even getting procedures, so that you COULD join up for a war.

I envy you.  Since I was a kid, I have wanted to see Cypress Gardens for no other reason than it's name.  I guess there are large parts of it remaining within the confines of LEGOLAND® in Florida.

Snorkeling the Crystal River with the manatees and exploring the nearby Indian mounds in the state park there is another good attraction.

They used to soak oranges in borax to keep them from getting moldy.  I'm not sure what they use now.  We probably wouldn't want to know.

Very true. I will think twice before putting the orange with the peel in my beer.

It’s probably terrible but if they’re not picked from the garden fresh in the summer, I prefer the canned Le Sueur peas, juice and all.

I do have a rather odd kind of color blindness.  I have never passed a single color blot test where you see a certain number, and yet I can easily see the above red airship label.  My deficiency is red/green and you would think that this would be a problem with traffic lights but not really.  I can see the green, yellow and red lights ok but if the sun is shining extra brightly on the light, then I sometimes get confused as to which color is showing.  During walks, bright red berries on shrubs are lost on me, I only see the green leaves.  From a distance, I honestly can't tell if a sign, or a car is green, brown, red or black.  Ha, I'd be a great witness if I were to appear in court to describe what color clothing the suspect was wearing.

Naked child on a dead bear?
Nothing to see here!

What is the significance of the cross sign on the baby’s cheek?

I like this one. The label on the box that he is carrying makes it a keeper.

Yeah, too bad the box label was cropped short.  We could have seen it duplicated, smaller and smaller.

@Rikki Gins  Cleaned out an old family friend's basement and found these, the other crates were too badly old to get any appreciable label pics:

Nice find, mr. a!  That bottom label is in pretty good shape.  The label side of the crate could be sawed off from the rest of the crate and sold, wood and all, for a good price on eBay.  I'm sure that someone would love to hang it on the wall of their mancave, etc.

Ha, perhaps, but I couldn't find a ghost label.
