I often heard how productive and how innovative California's agriculture producers are. Perhaps this is best illustrated in National Geographic's story on food import. The picture are fresh produce from four upscale markets in Manhattan. They traveled a long way from where they grown to the New York city. The origin with most varieties? California contributed 21 kinds of food out of the 60. This is more than 3 times the rest of United states. Actually California has produce more varieties than all other major region combined, with 6 from United States, 6 from Mexico, 5 from Italy and 3 from Costa Rica.
