    This orange crate has been in my family's houses for roughly the last thirty years, looks very old. It is currently being used to hold extra towels in the bathroom. It says Russo's Desert Citrus and is about 36 inches tall and about 18 inches deep and wide. On the large orange under the logo it says "Vitamin C Galore". I haven't found anything on the company, but in the lower right corner it says Brawley, California. Anything anyone could tell me would be appreciated.

      Hi Vikingfan82, I am Louis Russo, the company was my father's before and during WW2. We had citrus ranches in Imperial Valley and a vineyard near Arvin (Bakersfield area). We shipped citrus all across the U.S. Much more info if desired - Lou Russo on Facebook or Friscobay@aol.com
