Today I attended a Learn About Growing Citrus class at the University of California, Hansen Research and Extension Center
, Santa Paula, CA.
Dr. Faber is the soils/water/subtropical crops advisor for Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties.
His primary crop involvements are avocado and citrus and is currently evaluating various subtropical tree varieties for their economic viability in coastal environments. He also studies soil and water quality issues.
The class was mainly about how to grow and care for citrus trees. We also got to taste a variety of the citrus growing at the Hansen Research and Extension Center.
The tasting winner was the Page Citrus Hybrid
