Food facts

What fruits and vegetables grow in California?

Did you know that California produces 1/3 of the vegetables, 2/3 of the fruits and nuts, and over 80% of the wine in the nation? It’s true!

Since California is the largest producer of agricultural crops in the U.S., choosing CA Grown produce is good for the nation and the economy.

Supporting family farmers today helps to ensure there will be fresh food produced in California for generations to come.
