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.

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.

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.

Hi Rikki Gins, I've really enjoyed exploring this thread!  It's interesting to see how not only how commercial art has evolved but also how much it reflects "current events". Very well done by you and I look forward to your posts and additions. 🌝

Thank you, Caith.  I'm very happy that you like the thread.  I recently found another small stack of crate labels out in the shed.  Of course they aren't in as good of shape as the ones we find online, but I will post one every so often.

Obviously,  this isn't a label! I'm hoping someone might know if the soldiers in this picture were wearing uniforms from the Spanish American War,  WW1,  or another time in our history.  I'm really mostly interested in knowing the approximate time in history. I bought this years ago at a local pawn shop for a dollar and haven't had much luck online finding answers. I took the back off the frame and it looks like this was taken from a larger picture and wondered if it might have been a recruitment poster. Thanks to  Rikki Gins and 26 Horses for their help!

Looks like that hat, which I believe is the M1902 or M1911 Campaign hat, began in 1902 and was used off and on until WWII

http://www.worldwar1.com/dbc/camph.htm

An early version was used as early as 1898. https://thelastbestwest.com/shop/cowboy-hats/military-hats/1898-campaign-hat/

I can’t see the rifle very well but it resembles a M1903 Springfield.

I had no idea how much information could come from a hat! I really thought it would be the uniforms that would tell the story! Also, had no idea how much one of those hats would cost! Holy Moly!

The uniforms with the knickers are a real strong clue but I am not familiar with when they were in use. They were definitely a throwback to the cavalry days but I don’t know if they used them throughout WWI or not. Rikki has a lot of experience posting WWI photos so he may know.

Here you go, Caith.  Your picture was part of a 1917 recrutiment poster for American involvement in World War One.  Your partial picture was kind of like a puzzle.  I don't think any of us would have known that there was a dog in the illustration.  haha. (Courtesy of the Library of Congress.)

It  really grabbed my eyes when I first saw it. I've kicked myself over the years for not getting an old B&W group picture of soldiers dressed in their uniforms. They were all lined up in neat rows and was like a panoramic effect, very wide pic and not so tall.  I bet there was a connection to the pic I have.

So these are from the Norwegian silver maker?

Their enamel work may not be up to the best Asian cloisonné, but it's darned close.

Hi 26, I have only the 6 spoons and in my opinion, the enamel is gorgeous. I'll have to put a pic up and let you all have a look see. By the way, Norne made jewelry and lots of other things. Also, did you notice that Norne is Enron spelled backwards!  LOL

That would be fascinating information, Bart.  One thing about these labels is that most of these produce companies go way, way back in time, around the 1920s or so.  Most of them are out of business and therefore it would be impossible to gain access to their company history or accounting firms.  (As a young man, I once worked at a major orchard/worldwide shipper of pears and other fruit.  Due to the nature of my job, I eventually had the run of the place.  In particular, there was a storage room above one of the packing houses and it contained tons of file cabinets and other items of company history.  When I wasn't busy, I would look through the records.  It seemed to be mostly customer information, addresses and the like.  I did come across a few items of interest, like a Christmas card from Franklin D. Roosevelt and wife, and a 1940's 78 rpm record of radio advertisements recorded by some announcer whose name was Peter Paul, or something like that.  There were some unglued fruit packing labels, but I didn't come across any info as to who came up with the names.)  My psychic sense shows me an image of a roomful of ad execs, poring over the pages of a thick, newspaper, like the New York Times...looking for ideas for names.

Here is a vegetable crate label in search of a name.  Harking back to what Bart was wondering about, we must ask ourselves...what came first, the label or the name?

Yes. That is a Sandsquatch. This particular squatch is the only know squatch to visit a barber and comb his upper hair. I do believe his name is"Stinky" but I could be wrong on that part.

That's for sure!  Here is one that I found a few weeks ago and  thought it was maybe considered a little risqué for the time.

Produce crate labels can definitely be risqué/suggestive in nature, as these earlier examples show:

LOL!  I don't know how I missed seeing the Humble Melon or Instant Sex labels. I have to admit that these labels are really more entertaining and interesting than I could have imagined.  Mad Men might have been tame when compared to the ad agencies that came up with some of these!  The watermelon one caught my eye because where I grew up, watermelons were cheap and plentiful. It was one of the ways to sneak a little vodka onto the beach in an inconspicuous manner. ☺

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?

Yeah, yeah, I view all these lovely vintage crate labels from California, Florida, Georgia, Texas and Louisiana. One would think that in the USA there were no farms in the Northeast back in the day.
Jersey tomatoes & corn time has come. I had a Jersey tomato sandwich for my breakfast.

Very true, FISH.  Most of the crate labels I come across are from California, Washington and Oregon.  Lots of West Coast produce labels out there.

@Rikki Gins it is curious why most crate labels are from the West Coast. Today I traveled to a working farm in NJ for some corn and tomatoes.

do you collect these and are they hard to find?

@Dancing queen.  I once had a job as a kid where I helped move plants around for shipping and they were stored in reused produce crates that had fruit and vegetable labels on them.  The labels had been glued to the crates but through time, the glue had begun to wear off and I noticed that the labels could be gently peeled off without tearing.  I collected a bunch of the labels this way.  I stored them in a box, in an outbuilding and there they remained for many a year.  I recently came across them and they aren't in the best of shape, though some of them are still in relatively good condition. 

Vintage fruit and vegetable labels are not hard to find at all.  eBay sells lots of them but be sure to check that they are original crate labels and not ones that have been reproduced.  If you have a large, antique mall in your town then you can probably find a boxful of unused produce labels in paper collectable areas, along with postcards, etc.  I currently don't collect vintage fruit and vegetable labels but I would love to find an original apple crate label from an orchard that my grandfather used to work for in Monroe, Oregon.  So far, I have only found reproduction's of that label.

Thanks for the answer. I will check sum out on ebay to see what they go for. I dont think I would buy any but curious how popular they are.

Redlands Co-operative grew oranges.  Some of their other crate labels show a wrapped orange with the name 'Sunkist' stamped on it.  There is a place that still grows and ships oranges, in Redlands, California.  Judging from this video, it appears to be the same outfit.

There was a guy at a place I used to work at who brought in a big kettle full of hard resin that he proceeded to warm up.  By lunchtime the stuff was boiling hot and he wrapped individual potatoes in newspapers and cooked them in the resin.  When finished, you put the potato by your plate and peeled off the newspaper.  It left a wonderfully fluffy, totally cooked potato on the plate.  Those things tasted great and I ate a number of them despite the fact that there were burgers and sausage dogs that were also on hand.  I guess the Indians used to cook them that way, though without the newspapers, I imagine.

Are you sure it wasn't recycled solid fat, like butter that had been used for frying before, or some sort of Crisco - it would look yellow if it had been drained after use.  I don't believe much in recycling cooking oil to be used again, but some people filter it.  Mom used to re-use bacon fat.

I like basic heirloom tomatoes that can be purchased at some grocery stores and farmers markets.  They cost a little extra but are quite tasty.  Almost as good as home grown.

Possibly 60 to 80 years old.  Can't narrow it down any more than that.  Finding crate label production dates are difficult, especially when so many of the packing houses are no longer in existence.  (I saw another Stadelman's label on line exactly like the one on the previous page, only it had a pear on it rather than apples.)

According to my records, this is the second Humming Bird fruit crate label put out by the Tapo Citrus Assn.  I'm not sure which page the first one is on, or it might even be over in the EllGab Garden thread.  I do know that this second label is more colorful than the first one, though.

Wooden crates?

The crates were strange.  They were made out of thinly cut squares of wood that were held together by wires.  Once they were empty, you simply stepped on them and they would squash up nice and thin for easy disposal.  I was unloading plants from them, so the plant company must have got the crates after they had been used by the fruit and vegetable packers.

Post by: Rikki Gins on November 01, 2019, 04:14:47 PM
I didn't know you were color blind. Can you see purple? I hope so.

Yes, but if it is in conjunction with black, then it would be drowned out, and would appear black.  Same with the colors red and brown.  If a car had a black top and a red, or purple, or brown bottom half, then I would see the car as being black, but only from a distance.  Close up, I can actually see the correct colors.  Same with traffic lights.  I can see the red light OK, but not if the sun is shining directly upon it.  Then I've got to wait for somebody to honk at me, so that I know when to proceed.  Ha, so I'm a fun person to be stuck behind at a traffic light, but only if the sun is shining on it.

Policeman approaches me.  "Excuse me sir, but did you see any autos pass by on that road, off in the distance?  There was a bank robbery a couple of minutes ago and we're trying to get a make on the getaway car."

Me:  "As a matter of fact, yes, I did see a car speeding along that road a few minutes ago.  It was totally black, I remember that much  about it."

Policeman:  "Thank you sir, this will be a great help to us."

Me:  "Very glad to help, officer."

We started foreign language classes in junior high. We didn't get a choice of the language. They would teach either French or Spanish, alternating yearly. My two older brothers got Spanish, I got French. I think I would have made better use of Spanish than French, but I switched to Italian a few years later when the option was available.

Good for you, anniem.  I believe that any learned language is beneficial to one's overall wellbeing.  For instance, I would like to learn the Turkish language, for no other reason than to understand what Turkish singers are singing about in their songs.  Oh, I know a few words here and there, like Ask is love, Beni is me, siz is you.  You hear these words a lot in Turkish songs.  But I'd like to know what the rest of the song means.

That possum reminded me of coming home one night after work.  There was a possum sitting in the road and cars were driving over it (not on it) so I went to take a look.  It had been hit by a car because its nose was injured.  It was stunned and afraid, so I went and got a shovel and swooped it up and put it under a grape plant.  I checked back after an hour and it was still sitting there, along with a cat.  I looked again in the morning and it was gone.

Quite a story connected with the orange tree on the crate label: https://www.pe.com/2018/04/26/why-is-a-tent-covering-riversides-parent-navel-orange-tree/

That possum reminded me of coming home one night after work.  There was a possum sitting in the road and cars were driving over it (not on it) so I went to take a look.  It had been hit by a car because its nose was injured.  It was stunned and afraid, so I went and got a shovel and swooped it up and put it under a grape plant.  I checked back after an hour and it was still sitting there, along with a cat.  I looked again in the morning and it was gone. 
Can cats and possums be friends or was the cat taking advantage of the possum’s bad day?

When I checked on the possum after an hour or so, it was sitting up under the grape plant and there was a neighborhood cat sitting right next to it.  The cat did look at the possum as it sat there but the possum didn't give the cat much notice.  I noticed that the possum was blowing out it's nostrils, to clear the passages in order to breath better.  It's nose was definitely hit by a car.  It seems like the cat found the possum interesting, and did take advantage of the possum's immobility to sit by it and observe it.  It certainly seemed like the two of them were at ease with each other.  I like to think that the two of them were friends, at least for that moment in time.

An original crate label of mine, and very worn out.  At least it has some playing cards that show a full house.

History of Villa Park Orchards Assn:  http://www.vpoa.net/history/
Quote
The public was admonished to “Drink an Orange”marking the first promotion of orange juice. As a result, the orange, no longer a luxury item, became a staple of the American diet. Lithographed labels affixed at the ends of the wooden packing crates enhanced marketing of the product worldwide.

What's a tin devil?

When I was a kid, I read somewhere that there was a long ago tradition of leaving oranges in the Christmas stockings of those kids who had been good all year, and consequently, lumps of coal and/or a tin devil in the stockings belonging to bad little kids.  I think that Saint Nicholas put the fruit in the stockings, while a devil like being named Krampus was responsible for giving the bad kids a piece of coal and/or a tin representation of himself.  This was way back in time, were talking 4th-century, here.  I don't remember where I read about this old custom.  I tried to look it up but all I could find was that coal was given to the bad kids.  No mention of the tin devils.

The Coastal Sequoia (Redwood) is seven feet plus.  Just several inches short of being a full eight feet in length.  It is a fairly straight tree except for a small crook near the top.  I positioned it so that the slant will be drawn to the sun's path over time, and it should straighten out naturally.

OH! A big tree.
Years ago you could get a little redwood tree at the state fair. It came in a test tube, I was envisioning that. Any chance of a photo?

They used to give us those test tube trees at grade school.   I took a picture of the tree while it was still at the nursery.  (I advise doing this as it is fun to see what one's tree or plant looks like from the beginning.)  It is the second potted tree from the left on the front row.  All of the trees were almost eight feet high, but mine was slightly taller than the rest.

We had two cherry trees in the backyard in the home I grew up in. They had pits. We also had a couple crab apple trees. Though my mother tried, those did not make nice pies. But my Dad could grow the heck out of Rutgers tomatoes.

Did you peel it?

Yes, I was the one who peeled it off the box.  I was lifting full boxes of plants and pouring them into bins where women would sort them out, or put them in packages for mailing.  I even had a job title.  I was called a roustee, though I'm not sure how it was spelled.  Very hard, laborious work.  I doubt I could do it now.  Anyway, that was when I started to collect the vegetable labels.  The ladies were kind of tickled at how I would empty a box, peel the label off and then pick up another full box of plants to empty into their bins.

The fruit and vegetables still come to the grocery stores in containers, but they are made out of printed cardboard now, and have no labels.  I always peek into the storage rooms (employees only) when the back doors happen to be left open.

You might find this of interest.  This is not a crate label, rather it is a thin tissue paper that was wrapped around an orange, apple or pear as they were being packed in a cardboard box for shipment.  The box of produce might have been sent to eastern cities where some of the buyers knew that their customers liked to have fancy-dan papers wrapped around their fruit.  This is part of my collection, though it is in rather poor shape.  Still, you can kind of see what it says.

This one is from my personal crate label collection.  It is in a lot better shape than some of the others and also is rather large, so it is kind of amazing that I was able to peel it off of the crate without tearing it.

Absolutely.  I started one from a seed and it lived for several years in a pot.  In during the winter and out during the summer.  You have to be careful about watering (needs good drainage), don't let it dry out,  and guard it against frost.  I never got lemons, though.

Absolutely.  I started one from a seed and it lived for several years in a pot.  In during the winter and out during the summer.  You have to be careful about watering (needs good drainage), don't let it dry out,  and guard it against frost.  I never got lemons, though.
Do the leaves smell? Did it flower?

Yes, they had a nice citrus smell.  You could probably make a tea out of them but I don't know for sure.  Mine would flower every spring but they dried up and fell off.  Probably because it didn't get enough sun in my house.

How long ago did you plant it? Is it a fast grower?
I do a weekly video chat with my mom and my brothers, one brother is terminal so we want to be able to spend time together. My little brother is in our family home, and he showed us the huge trees that my father planted 40 something years ago. We all remember jumping over them back then.

I picked it up at a nursery, in a small pot, and put it into a bigger pot, where it grew about five or six feet high, over six or seven years.  I very nearly gave it away to someone when I couldn't find a spot to plant it, but then I dug a hole where the pot was and planted it there.  That was about two years ago and it is now about ten feet high.  It's not very far from my backyard deck, and I'll have to deal with it being too close, in another fifty or sixty years.  I'll try to get a picture of it for the EllGab Garden thread.

Kind of a refreshing change from all of the citrus labels.

But how can I trust it is in fact asparagus?  That airplane could actually have kiwis.  I need transparency.

Here is another produce label that I peeled off a crate, so many years ago.

I'm beginning to think there was a period in your life where you hijacked produce trucks.  ;D ;D ;)

Many years ago I had a job where I was processing and packaging plants for retail shipment to customers.  The rough stock, like daylilies, begonias, gladiolas and the like, were shipped from the produce belt in California.  The growers down there used vegetable and fruit crates to ship the plants in.  Many of them still had the original produce labels on them.  So I helped myself to them.

You can still find produce boxes at your local grocery store.  In the produce department where you see the employees restocking the fruits and vegetables.  Only now a days, all of the crates are made out of printed cardboard.  Good luck trying to peel the labels off of them.
