Not unheard of. Campbell's Soup received New Jersey tomatoes in stock cars as well.

Subject: [RealSTMFC] Watermelons
 
On another list a modelers was discussing modeling the ACL watermelon car.  He says he was from Texas and mentioned a town that he says was the watermelon shipping capital during the 1940's.  He then said most the photos he had showed the watermelons being shipped in stockcars.  Hmm.  A stockcar amongst the reefers at a Produce dealer?
