The California Farm Bureau (CFB) Young Farmers and Ranchers stopped at Lindcove REC in February on their tour of eastern Tulare County during their annual Leadership Conference. More than 50 attendees were received by Staff Research Associate Therese Kapaun who gave a presentation describing the research activities at Lindcove, followed by a short talk about the origins of citrus cultivar groups.
Attendees were given free time to peruse and taste more than 50 varieties of citrus, while Therese remained on hand to answer questions about the varieties. Late February is an excellent time of year for both mid season and late season varieties of navels, mandarins, grapefruit, and specialty varieties. Their tour included stops at Lake Kaweah Terminus Dam, Gill Cattle Ranch, and Monrovia Nursery.
