Lemon Grove San Diego Information and Highlights

A city with unique historical roots, Lemon Grove still exhibits community pride and spirit in our modern era, boasting about having the "Best Climate on Earth," its motto for more than 100 years.

There is a ten-foot-wide sculpture of a lemon located at 3361 Main Street. It lies before a small lemon grove beside the Orange Line Trolley tracks near the local Trolley station and downtown bus stop. Written across the base of this monument are the words "Best Climate On Earth."


The community was settled in 1869 by its first known permanent resident, sheep rancher Robert Allison. From the 1860s to 1900, the area was known for sheep and poultry ranching as well as vegetable crops. In the early 1900s, the community acquired its name when large citrus groves were planted, and lemon and orange growing and shipping became the area's major industry.

The Lemon Grove Incident in 1931 was a boycott of segregated schools by Mexican Americans, resulting in the first court-ordered school desegregation in the United States.

By World War II, most of the citrus groves had disappeared and suburbanization had begun. By 1960, most of the easily developable land was gone. Lemon Grove was incorporated as a general law city in 1977; however, it continues to receive law enforcement services, via contract, from the San Diego County sheriff's office.


Centrally located in the southwest portion of San Diego County, Lemon Grove is only 9 miles from downtown San Diego and only 12 miles from the airport.


Lemon Grove, California, gets 13 inches of rain per year. The U.S. average is 37. Snowfall is 0 inches. The average US city gets 25 inches of snow per year. The number of days with any measurable precipitation is 40.

On average, there are 268 sunny days per year in Lemon Grove, California. The July high is around 83 degrees. The January low is 45. The comfort index, which is based on humidity during the hot months, is a 45 out of 100, where higher is more comfortable. The U.S. average on the comfort index is 44.
