From the fog-kissed coast to sunny interior valleys, Central California is home to world-renowned growing areas. Near the coast, Salinas Valley, a major producer of lettuce, boasts the nickname Salad Bowl of the World, while nearby Castroville is the main growing region for artichokes. California also produces 70 percent of the nation's asparagus, much of it grown inland, near Stockton. Other Central Coast crops include sweet raspberries, and juicy table grapes.

This project is possible with funding from the California Department of Food and Agriculture's Specialty Crop Block Grant Program. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN THIS GIVEAWAY. Giveaway is open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia, age 21 or older at time of entry.
