Flavor of the Month: Roasted Avocado
Avocado growers have lost at least $1 million worth of fruit and about 200 acres of orchards to the Gap wildfire in Santa Barbara County, officials said Wednesday. County Agricultural Commissioner William D. Gillette said at least 233 acres of orchards have burned.
Gillette estimated the cost to replace trees, farm equipment, and irrigation lines, plus lost production until new trees bear fruit, will be $9.5 million over the next five to seven years. - Chico Enterprise Record
