Citrus Research of the Nineteenth Century from the CES Library


In the nineteenth century, citrus trees change from a curiosity to a viable -- and lucrative -- crop, and the guides to growing them change accordingly. From about 1870 onward we see a proliferation of books on growing citrus in California, which appear in edtion after edition, as new information becomes available each year. Here are just a few nineteenth-century examples from the library of the Citrus Experiment Station.
