Asparagus and Peaches in SC

With all the discussion of FL oranges, I have been wondering about the asparagus shipments from Edgefield county SC.

My dad told me he helped load crates of asparagus into boxcars (maybe reefers) about 1937. The one shipper in Johnston, SC, did about 2 cars a day. Is there any way to put more numbers on this traffic and any destinations?

On a related subject, can anyone tell me where to look to put numbers on peach shipments around 1950?

Would these have shipped via FGE cars?

TIA.
