Summary  Northern California and the Sacramento Valley were known world-wide, when this postcard was purchased circa 1910, as top producers of popular fruit, nuts, and produce. Though not as well known a crop as oranges or tomatoes, figs yielded anywhere from $100 to $200 a planted acre around the time this card was printed, and by the end of the 1920s there were over 300 acres in Sacramento County devoted to the gritty fruit. Purported to be the largest fig tree in the world, this massive producer was a landmark in Marysville for decades.
