Fillmore Piru Citrus Association Wind Chill Chart

When you grow up in the city where Sunkist Orange was founded you get to know a few things about citrus. I recently saw an article in the Los Angeles Times wherein people were going to a museum that had a "smudge pot," and no one knew what it was.

If you grew up in the "Citrus Capital of the World," you know your smudge pots and you know what a freeze will do to the crop if it happens, hence the chart and the smudge pots. They still use smudge pots in the County of Ventura, where lemons and oranges are king.
