Oregon's farms grow some of the best produce in the country. While the growing season is shorter than in California, the quality for some Oregon produce is considered even higher.  The shorter growing season seems to intensify the flavor of the crops. Oregon's climate of warm and dry summers and cool (but not frosty and wet) winters results in happy plants.
