Historic Hood River
Ideal Fruit Grader
This packing house was in Yakima Washington, but all the fruit was sorted using a Hood River product: the Ideal Fruit Grader from the Ideal Fruit Nursery Company. Notes indicate they packed almost 500,000 boxes of apples and pears in a season.
A sign running down the middle of the sorting machine says, “No Talking Permitted While Machine Is Running.”
