Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows:
THE IMPORTANT DEHYDRATING chili pepper industry in California is located in the coastal counties from Santa Maria to San Diego. The loss of agricultural acreage in these areas is necessitating a search for new areas of production. Inland valleys of central and southern California offer extensive acreages for this crop, but differ from coastal climates by higher summer temperatures and shorter growing seasons.
C. A. Taylor and W. A. Nicholson, Chili Products Corporation, Los Angeles, assisted with pungency determinations.
