Excerpt: ...European grapes grown in California, so nothing in the
way of climatic conditions exists which would prevent the
development of nut growing in this state. The soil conditions vary
widely, all the way from the sandy loams to the deep soils and
gravels, and it is possible to find thousands of acres of deep,
rich loam soil. Some of it is five to twenty-five feet deep. Of
course the rainfall in that semi-arid region is insufficient for
nuts but that can be supplemented by irrigation water, so that is
practically no disadvantage. Since I have been there I have tried
to interest some of the fruit growers in the planting of a few
different varieties of the hardier nuts, and I have distributed
among them some of the walnuts and this year I am bringing in some
of the old shagbark hickory nuts from Massachusetts, and I am going
to distribute them among my friends and acquaintances there to be
used to raise shade trees
