Facts about Dulzura
Dulzura, California is an unincorporated community in San Diego County, California. It is located 25 miles ESE of the city of San Diego, about 10 miles north of the U.S.-Mexican border. Dulzura is derived from a Spanish name meaning "gentleness". Another theory is that the name is derived from the thriving honey industry that began in the area in 1869 and comes from the Spanish translation of Dulzura meaning "sweetness". Although it was also the place of death for former Major League Baseball pitcher Eric Show, it was best known between 1908 and 1914 as the home of a delicacy known as "Clark's Pickelized Figs," a candied fruit that was sold from small firkins at grocery stores across the United States. The figs were produced at Clark Ranch by Frank and Lila Clark. The advent of World War I resulted in a sugar shortage which effectively ended the family business. The Clark Ranch remains in the family to the present day, and the original "Pickle House" is now the ranch office. The landmark Dulzura Schoolhouse was a one-room fixture in the community from the 1900s until it was closed in the 1950s.The ZIP Code is 91917 and the community is inside area code 619. The community is largely rural and has a population of only about 700 people.
