California prohibits certain fruits, vegetables, and plants from coming into the state. Here are a couple of handy resources that quickly give the scoop on what is and isn't allowed. Both of these are put out by the California Department of Food and Agriculture: HOUSE PLANTS FRUIT & VEGETABLES Having lost produce to inspectors during our last visit to the state, I wanted to ensure all my houseplants and groceries made it through this time. Surprisingly, most of the produce I had wasn't at risk. Forbidden fruit became fresh mango salsa, homemade applesauce, fresh squeezed lemon juice, peeled and sectioned grapefruit chunks. My driver was prepped with all the criteria to defend our houseplants gathered by the door. We were ready. Inspectors at the Blythe, CA crossing waived us straight through... they weren't stopping anyone. LOL The applesauce was delicious, regardless, and if I hadn't prepped, you know I would have had to leave those 5 beautiful Pink Ladies at the border. Hope these guides help you. They weren't easy to find even though I knew what I was looking for.
