I was talking to someone who remembered smelling lemon blossoms while driving through southern California as a child. I don't think that's as easy to find now. We were advised against buying a citrus orchard because of the uncertainty of being able to afford the water, because the citrus would not bring in enough to pay for its own water in southern California. As well as development, water is a key factor here. We are planting citrus, but most of it is unusual varieties.
