None of our CA relatives had ever even heard of this gem of an attraction that I unearthed. Located near Riverside, the park has hundreds of citrus trees of all varieties, and a free guided tour will allow you to taste many of them straight from the tree. Call ahead to ensure you have the correct tour time -- I believe they were at 10 am last spring. They also send you on your way with a huge bag of free citrus, so don't buy any at the stand on your way in.
We tried many types of oranges, lemons, meyer lemons, limes, tangelos, tangerines, citron, and a funky looking thing called Buddha's hand. Fabulous!
They have a nice gift shop with a gorgeous collection of antique fruit crate labels in mint condition. Also a very good interpretive center.
This would be a great place to picnic. However, they do not sell food.
