California is known for many things: sun, sea, mountains, relaxed way of living. One of the specialties that this wonderful state offers is its avocados.
The avocado was introduced from Mexico to California in the 19th century, and has become a successful cash crop. About 59,000 acres (240 km2) – some 95% of United States avocado production – is located in Southern California, with 60% in San Diego County. Fallbrook, California claims the title of “Avocado Capital of the World”.
