This Calavo Grove sign is the sort of sign one would see on fences and posts all over Southern California where the groves were once plentiful.
There are still a few in Riverside County and plenty in North County San Diego. This sign always had a couple of companions, a “NO TRESPASSING” and the sign that laid out the penalty for that crime in whatever county the signage was posted. One cannot just pull over to the side of the road and pick fruit!
A vintage view of Avocados picking and growing in California.
