I work for a large grocery chain and had no idea what ‘row’ meant. My guys were surprised I didn’t know but now I do thanks to you.

Years ago cherries were packed using the face and fill method. Where a standard western lug would be hand packed upside down. Essentially, they were wooden lugs at the time and the lid would be nailed on and filled from the opposite end. They would then place pack the cherries in a row, so depending on the average size of the cherry, that is how many cherries would be packed in the row. 9 row cherries, 9 cherries in a row and so on. Hence the name row size. These lugs would have three top rows of place packed cherries and the remainder of the box would be volume filled. Once again, hence, the face and fill method. The size of the cherries that were volume filled were allowed to be no more than 2 sizes smaller than the size of the cherries packed in the face. The bottoms were then nailed onto the lugs. When the buyers would purchase the cherries and open the top, the display was beautiful.

O.G. Packing in Stockton, California still packs a specialty box this way. They are time consuming and expensive. So just a bit of nostalgia for you.

You are right, if they could lay 10 cherries in a neat row, they were called “10 row”, if the cherries were smaller, and they could place 12 cherries in a row, they were called “12 row.”

Where did “ROW” come from?

row 8 1/2 = Doble Jumbo (JJ)?
row 9=Jumbo(J)?
row 10 = XL?
row 11 = Large?

thanks.
