03 May DR. PATRICK’S POSTCARD ROADSIDE: Lemon Grove’s Giant Lemon
Lemon Grove’s Giant Lemon
In the roadside world of Big Food, California has giant citrus lying around all over the place including Lemon Grove’s Giant Lemon.
Once surrounded by lemon groves, this San Diego suburb first rolled out its giant lemon for a 4th of July parade in 1928. It was weather-proofed and set up at the intersection of Broadway & Main depicted on this 1950s postcard where it still sits today emblazoned with the town’s slogan, “Best Climate on Earth.”
