Named after Citrus Avenue, which passes through the community, Citrus is a Census-Designated Place (CDP). Locals refer to it as "Unincorporated Covina" or "Unincorporated Azusa", but it has a personality all its own.
Covina's slogan, "One Mile Square and All There", was coined when the incorporated area of the city was only one square mile. In 1965, it was replaced by, "Where Friendship is Traditional." This city, previously known for its citrus orchards is still thought to be home to the best oranges in the world.
