B.G. Anderson 

The B. G. Anderson Company of Eustis, Florida was established in 1968. Mr. Anderson developed his own watermelon brand called "Old Dobbin Watermelons," from a special variety (51-27) that was expressly grown and packaged for B.G. Anderson by the Simpson Nursery Company of Monticello, Florida, the world's largest grower of watermelons for seed at that time.

According to historical records of Altoona, Florida, the Grand Island Packing House, built in the 1920's, became the property of B.G. Anderson. In the 1940's, it became known as the Grand Island Packing House. In the 60's, the packing operation moved to Umatilla, Florida and became known as Golden Gem. 

B.G. Anderson was known to ship a lot of watermelons in boxcars.
