California is the most populous state. California has a very diverse geography that ranges from the Pacific Coast in the west, to the Sierra Nevada in the east – from the Redwood–Douglas-fir forests of the northwest, to the Mojave Desert areas in the southeast. The center of the state is dominated by the Central Valley, a major agricultural area. In addition, at least half of the fruit produced in the United States is now cultivated in California, and the state also leads in the production of vegetables.
