California is on the western side of the the United States of America and is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean. It is nicknamed "The Golden State" either because of the gold rush of 1849 or from the golden poppies that are the state flower.

Europeans landed in the 16th century, with Spanish explorers leading the way. But when Mexico gained its independence from Spain in 1821, it also gained control of California. That didn’t last long: in 1848, at the end of the Mexican-American War, California became a U.S. territory. In 1850, California officially became a state.

The state is the top U.S. producer of lemons, apricots, avocados, dates, figs, grapes, kiwi, nectarines, peaches, raspberries, strawberries, and many others. And it’s not just fruit—California leads the nation in production of almonds, pistachios, and walnuts. It even grows over 90 percent of the broccoli that’s produced in the United States.

The state also produces timber, cement, natural gas, and petroleum.
