Agricultural activity 12 months of the year

provides Daytona Beach with a variety of garden products

for shipment as well as local consumption. Climate and

location also result in several unusual crops, among them

boeing papayas and broom grass,

The local papaya croj isepicked during Nov.

to June from the most northern grove in the United'States.

A natural hollow on the peninsula where the climate is

tempered by sea and river, protects the fruit from winds

ind low temperature.

Broom grass, grown in a 330-aore tract along

the Tomoka Biveredgem aarehland aIs out from Mroh. to Nov.

and shipped in carload lots to broom factories all over

the United tates8 It ie used as-a broom filler and sells

at about ~40.00 per ton. -So far as is known, by I. w.

Sterling, owner of the area, the grass is peculiar only

to the Matanzas Hew Smyrna vicinity, .and oay have been in-

troduced to thisocountry by the early Spanish colonists.

Aside from an annual burning-over, the grass requires no

care, .
