According to Fyffes this is

According to Fyffes this is the very first label ever known (from 1929) and the version I have is from one of the first prints that Fyffes made (the glue on the back only comes in action when you add water, like stamps). It comes from Fyffes in Ireland back in the ’90, where they found the labels in a drawer of an old closet they were going to throw out.
In comparison the first Chiquita labels were issued around 1960.
