Riverside The Essential
This city is heralded as the birthplace of California's citrus industry. In 1873, a resident received two seeding orange trees from propagated in Brazil; the seedlings thrived in Riverside's fertile soil and mild climate. In 1907 the University of California dedicated its Citrus Experiment Station here and a branch campus in Riverside in 1954.
