What Grows in San Diego County?

San Diego is blessed with a long growing season, abundant sunshine and many micro climates, giving us a huge range of seasonal choices for locally grown food. Unlike many parts of the country, food can be grown here year-round.

From the coastal areas to the deserts, the mountains and the inland valleys, we grow a full range of fruits, vegetables and other farm products.
